After virus on PC, external hard drive folders grayed out

11 years ago

I got a virus, that flashed my hard drive was failing. Called computer store who said bring it in, since there were no offers to fix it for money it probably wasn't a virus but it was. So, they cleaned my computer. I never thought about my external hard drive.

I just went to transfer some pictures from my camera and when I tried to back them up to the external, it was not recognized by the Camedia (Olympus) program and when I check using Windows Explorer all the folders on that drive are grayed out. I did not try to open any. Could the virus be on there to? or did it hide them?
