Please explain better. It sounds like you may have only saved shortcuts, rather than files. Try it on a different computer (or if this is on a different computer, try it on the original one).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

when i open my pendrive now, it shows only one shortcut, that too of my pendrive itself and when i double click on it, my files will be shown as usual , i have read in net that its due to some virus, tell me how to remove the virus......

Copy the files to the HD (if they are not still there). Reformat the flash drive and try again.

Yes, there are viurses that affect flash drives but this doesn't sound like one to me - they normally prevent access.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
