How to delete virus in the system volumn information folder of Seagate Freeagent USB 2.0 500GB?
My antivirus software detects that a virus/trojan exists in the system volumn information folder of Seagate Freeagent USB 2.0 500GB but it is unable to access the folder.
I even cannot turn off system restore from the System Properties of Windows XP Professional because unlike other hard disks of my laptop which have monitoring status, the FreeAgent Drive has an offline status.
I connected FreeAgent Drive to a desktop computer with Vista, it still shows offline status and the properties of the system volumn information folder is read-only and not accessible.
Can anyone tell me how I can get around this to remove the virus/trojan? As I don't have another large disk copy the existing files on the external disk, this basically rules out my option of reforming it.
