Could I have a virus on my external hard drive?
A couple years ago I was downloading a lot of MP3’s and movies directly onto an external hard drive. During that process I got a virus on my PC and, by my best judgment, it was on my ext HD too.
It was so long ago I don’t remember how I got rid of the virus nor do I remember if I ever got it off my ext HD (if it was there too.)
So the question is, could I have a virus still sitting there on my external hard drive, and, if so, would it transfer over to my current PC if I connected the two?
