Hi guys I need your help
My harddrive was infected with some virus that turned all files and folders into 1kb shortcuts. I have scanned it with avast, but now most of files and folders have disappeared. Whenever I run a scan it shows that the missing files are being scanned but I cant see them.
Also, the few available files and folders barely make 200MB, but the hard disk shows that its almost full (412gb used up out of 465gb)
How do I get these file and folders visible,I have tried showing hidden files and folders option, but its not working.

The 'show hidden files and folders' should have worked but try unhiding them from command prompt. Check # 7 here and my # 15 if you need help with the syntax:
