Hi, I have a WD external Hard disk (around 2TB I think) , that has been infected with a malware from Another laptop.
The question is :
1. Is it possible to connect the hard drive to another laptop without infecting it?
2. How to get rid of the Malware without deleting the hard disk content
"This virus spreads by attaching its code to other files on your PC or network."
Run whatever antivirus/antimalware. MalwareBytes, Hitman Pro, etc.
See what they clean up
To some other sacrificial store device, copy these pics and videos.
Disconnect this infected drive, and run those AM/AV tools against the copy. See what happens.
And whatever host system you're doing this with, be absolutely prepared to do a full wipe and reinstall, or recover from a full drive backup.
