Empty files and folders on a shared area
Came in this morning and I am suddenly having trouble seeing or finding folders and files in a certain shared area on our file server. But when I check for free space under properties, I know the files are
still there since the amount of Used Space is still the same as before. When
I open up Microsoft Word or Real Player, I can still load the files listed
under "Most Recently Viewed" section, but when I actually go into the shared drive, none of the files show up.
What I noticed was all the files were showing as hidden, but even when i change the hidden attribute, I am not able to because it is greyed out. Even if I copy the files to my local hard drive I am still not able to change the hidden attribute.
I suspect that this is due to a virus, and I have run a full system scan to
remove any threats. But I still cannot see any folders or files. Sophos is not able detect any threats either.
I have tried going to Control Panel, Folder Options, View, and then select
"show hidden files," but it still doesn't work.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
