    Is this a USB hard drive or a Flash Drive.

    How do you know it is infected, please post any logs from scans you may have run.

    What is on the drive?


    You should avoid files with the following file extensions: exe, .scr, .ini, .htm, .html, .php, .asp, .xml, .zip, .rar, .cab as they may be infected.

    I backed up the drive and did a thorough wipe.
