    I recently used a thumb drive to copy word files to my new computer,but when I tried to open my word files they have changed into VEM files????????? which I cannot read as they look like gibberish rubbish! The icon for the word file has also changed as well. I really want to retrieve my old word files - can someone help me.

    PS I have windows XP

    Does the thumb drive have any encryption or security built into it? Was any software included with the thumb drive?

    Regards,

    Hi All,

    Have same problem here, Pen drive files converted to additional .vem extension and containing gibberish. Sounds like a virus but I can't find a reference anywhere on the web. Computers heavily protected where pen drive inserted. Any help appreciated

    I had the same issue. Your drive compressed your file. You need to decompress it and it should be fine.
