It is my pleasure and we in SevenForums do it for that little pleasure in helping others with whatever we know.

I have already put in my EDIT note in post#10 "Your files will in no way be affected by running USBFix and MBAM. So don't worry about it."

Haven't you read Flippylumpy's thread where all his data in the HDD came alive after so many exercises? He only needed to give the "unhide" command finally. (He had also copied all data to another drive using WinRAR before going through all the exercises including USBFix and MBAM)

In case you encounter any practical problems in running USBFix and MBAM, please seek help in the System Security sub-forum where there are many experts specialised in these tasks.

(Unfortunately Cottonball is not well. Otherwise I would have referred this thread to Cottonball in the beginning itself as per Cottonball's desire.)
