  1. Hi all,

    Please help me to retrieve my files; I am having a folder which contains some video files that was copied from another computer to my pen drive. After successfully copying the files and folder when I inserted the pen drive to my computer the folder suddenly changes to Windows Shell Common DLL and nothing was visible inside the folder. It only shows the content of the folder is 8MB in size, but the folder name and icon has been totally changed and its attribute has been changed to HAS. How can I revert back the content of the folder to get the default folder icon and also get my MP4/MPEG video files to the previous state in Windows 7 Ultimate Here I am attaching some screen shots for better understanding.

    If you can still access the original files on the other computer, it may be best to plug your pen drive in there, and see what happens. If it looks corrupt on there too, reformat the pen drive on that PC and copy the files again.
