    If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in

    hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

    Step 1:

    Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

    http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

    Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your pendrive now.

    This will remove the autorun.inf files from your pendrive and also from drives.

    Step 2:

    Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

    Here I assume your pen drive letter as G:

    Enter this command.

    attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

    You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

    paste it.

    Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

    Now press "Enter".

    Now check for your files in Pen Drive.

    Step 3:

    After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

    http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes-anti-malware

    Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

    Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

    Good Luck.

    This will solve your problem. I had the same problem with all my pen drives, whatever I put it through "send to" all my files are short cuts and still occupy my pendrive space. This small software solved my problem.

    Good luck.
