I have two different thumb drives (two different brands also) that were working fine. And then suddenly I cannot access the files on them - they have been converted to a folder called _MSTBKFS with a whole lot of files with BUK extension. I'm running Windows 7.

Any help to fix these files, and obviously to also prevent it happening again, would be greatly appreciated.

It sound of virus/malware infection...

run cleaning soft (antivirus).... u may need to run rkill first.... (so the cleaning more effective)
