USB folders deleted

Question

Posted (edited)

As soon as I plugged my USB drive, Adaware 11 treated all folders on the key as .exe files and deleted them.  The files not in folders appear intact.

Example:  Folder  PRINT  resulted in ""Virus detected in PRINT.exe". 

How can I recover them?    Seems the option "disinfect" was ON by default after adaware updated itself?

BTW, the control panel says  "NOT activated""  "Protection inactive"

Hi jetlag,

Have you checked if the folders are in the quarantine of Ad-Aware?

 

P.S.
Any particular reason why you haven't upgraded to adaware antivirus version 12?

Thanks for your quick answer.  The quarantine file is empty.  The files are listed in the detection history with an option to "delete selected"or "delete all"".  Does that mean they have not been deleted yet?

You're welcome :)

I'm not sure, I think it's best that you explore the USB drive yourself.
