Switched from Windows 7Pro to Windows10 (not sure relevant)
Flash drive worked fine ...opened it after switching and all files had been converted to PFiles..(ex:" title.doc" saved in Word 2010. Now became " title.doc.PFile". Off files became title.pdf.PFile, excel same, jpegs became title.jpeg.FIle and so on and so on...no matter what type of file.)
They won't open on any computer, some files that didn't change I can open the file fine. However, when I use a different computer (work, library, friends) they wouldn't open at all...the Pfiles or the ones that didn't convert.
I open folder properties..they all have every box checked, including in advanced and they are all now Read only. So I change all of it, unencrpted, make not read only, not ready for archive etc.. close the flash drive but the next time I open it...everything is right back.
After 11 ( not making that up) hours with Windows people support not having a clue. They told me virus..bought new flash drive, ran scans on flash and computer and Windows defender, installed Norton, switched back to Windows 7 Pro and reset all the checked boxes and it still happens.
I can open at home (Support made me go back to 10 before they would help me) but can not open on any other device.
I never did the encryption thing..have no clue how. Never had passwords for flash drives, no virus on computer or flash, bought two new ones.
Windows 7 Pro to Windows 10 running Office 2010
Dell 64 bit
Anyone have any ideas???
