How to recover lost files after virus attack?
A virus is a type of malicious software that penetrates system memory areas, code of other programs, and boot sectors. It is capable of deleting important data from a hard drive, USB drive or memory card.
Most users do not know how to recover files after a virus attack. In this article, we want to tell you how to do it in a quick and easy way. We hope that this information will be useful to you. There are two main methods you can use to easily remove the virus and recover deleted data after a virus attack.
Delete the virus using the command prompt
1) Click the “Start” button. Enter CMD in the search bar. You will see the “Command Prompt” at the top of the pop-up window. Press Enter.
2) Run the Command prompt and type in: “attrib –h –r –s /s /d driver_name\*.*”
After this step, Windows will start recovering the virus-infected hard drive, memory card or USB. It will take some time for the process to be completed.
Remove the virus by rolling the system back to a restore point
To start Windows recovery, click the “Start” button. Type Restore in the search bar. In the next window click “Start System Restore” → “Next” and select the desired restore point.
Another variant of the path is “Control Panel” → “System” → “System Protection”. A recovery preparation window will appear.

That’s all to be said about the second method.
