Hello and thank you for choosing


I dont think you can retrieve any data that may have been on the file.

Typically the ONLY data was the virus itself.

However, if your files have been infected, they most likely have been corrupted, and are essentially lost.


So i guess im not sure what the type of files you are trying to open that was infected, or was the origin file?
