files on memory stick

  pete h 16:45 11 Mar 2009

hya again peeps, i have put some files onto a memory stick, they all worked fine and then one day my video file showed all the files as strange names and sign, none of them would work. a couple of days ago another folder (my documets) also went the same way, could anyone tell me why this is happening and is there a way of converting them back to working programmes.

You could try a recovery program like Recuver, however, memory sticks are meant for Short term use only, and are not as reliable at storing data as a Harddrive.

You could also have a Virus, which if you have, has already done the damage.

Use a program like A2free from Emsi software click here, to check and remove any viruses or trogans.

If your files have been corrupted, there is little you can do about it.
