Windows 7: How to recover files and folder from Windows Shell Common DLL?

02 Apr 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit.
How to recover files and folder from Windows Shell Common DLL?

Hi all,
Please help me to retrieve my files; I am having a folder which contains some video files that was copied from another computer to my pen drive. After successfully copying the files and folder when I inserted the pen drive to my computer the folder suddenly changes to Windows Shell Common DLL and nothing was visible inside the folder. It only shows the content of the folder is 8MB in size, but the folder name and icon has been totally changed and its attribute has been changed to HAS. How can I revert back the content of the folder to get the default folder icon and also get my MP4/MPEG video files to the previous state in Windows 7 Ultimate Here I am attaching some screen shots for better understanding.

Open with using the Windows Shell Common file
