I have a file on a memory stick that seems to have become infected or corrupted. There are many folders and files on the memory stick but this is the only one that has a problem, unfortunately it is also an important folder that I need for work.


The name of the folder itself is fine but when i open it everything is in strange giberish characters and I can not open any of the documents or folders in this file.


Do you have any idea what this could be and how I can fix it without damaging any of the other files on the memory stick?
