If you dont want to get anything off of it you should just be able to reformat it and use it

I'd honestly just throw it in the trash, and get a new drive for like $5

when in doubt, don't run anything executable, scan it first.

reformat should destroy the files.

is this a sdcard? you can also upload the documents from your phone to google drive, let google scan the virus for you.

I could just do it, but can't because I need the files
