My USB has some sort of virus and whatever I put in it gets there in the form of a shortcut and it cannot be accessed again. Initially I thought it might be a defective system to which USB was plugged but that was not the case. After I found out that the problem was USB, I have formatted it so many times which obviously meant the removal of complete data and then put in the new data. But it still keeps on making shortcuts. It is a 64gb USB and I want it to be working properly. What should I do?
USB keeps making files shortcuts
