My micro SD card got infected by some "USBC" virus. I checked with several antivirus but they don't detect it. Just wondering if anybody knows how to remove the virus without formatting the whole card.

Hello Swagata,

You never replied to your original post here. By the looks of the graphic in that thread, your flash drive has file corruption issues. Those odd characters aren't malware, they are corrupted files. My best guess at least. Why not check?

Not sure what version of Windows you are running though.

XP - Go to Start - Run, type cmd (and Enter). At the prompt type the following, then press Enter after each:

chkdsk f: /r

You will need to replace that "f" with whatever drive letter the computer has assigned to your flash drive. If you are lucky, since this really is an indication of pending flash drive failure, Windows will correct the file system.

Vista/7/8 - Go to Start Search, type cmd.exe in the Start Search box. Cmd.exe will appear at the top of the Menu. Rightclick on it and choose "Run as administrator". At the prompt copy/paste the following, pressing Enter after:

chkdsk f: /r
