All my files say 0 bytes, I know though that they are most certainly NOT 0 bytes. I had these files for a while so that's how i know but how come they are 0? Is it a virus or something?
Inspiron E1505 Windows 10 / XPS 10 Windows RT
Dimension 8400 Windows 7/8
The files are "tehre" with their appropriate names but it says 0 bytes. But everything else is fine just my word documents, music, and images are gone. Does this help?
You need to scan the system to find out what virus or worm hit it. Try http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
However, if you're seeing zero-byte files, those files are gone - you will need to restore them from your backups; there's no way to recover them if they've been overwritten with zero-byte files.
what you really need to do is run an online virus scan as suggested.
and you must have an anti-virus nowadays, so please protect yourself and others with one. as suggested earlier, go to www.grisoft.com for their free version of AVG.
