Virus on a USB

Postby johntpartee » Thu Jul 12, 2018 12:30 pm

One of my USBs got a virus at a local internet cafe and when I put it into my computer I deleted all of the files, but it still shows that there are 8GBs of info on it. How do I find the hidden files?

Do a full format on it (uncheck the "quick format" box). If that doesn't work - bin it and buy a new one.
