I have a flashdisk that I copied files from a network drive at my last client. When I attempted to transfer the files to my personal computer I noticed that the names of the files had been changed to gibberish. (This was not what the files were named when I copied them) Assuming that the data was non-retrievable I then attempted to delete the files and free up the space on my portable disk. I receive the message, "Cannot delete file: Cannot read from the source file or disk"
If I attempt to delete the entire folder I receive this message, "Cannot delete (gibberish): The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
I would love to recover the data but at the least I need to delete these files from the disk, what can I do?
