PDF files issue
I'm trying to recover a folder with some critical data that was damaged or corrupted, likely by a virus. It’s a 10GB folder that contains PDF documents. None will open, and each report that the format of the file is invalid and/or does not match the extension.
I'm looking for the best tools or services, free or fee-based, that will give me the best chance of recovering at least some of this data.
Error message is attached.
Try this: Click on Start and in the "Search programs and files" box enter the name of one of the PDF files (nameoffile.pdf), or enter .pdf to see a list of the PDF files on your computer. Hopefully, you can open and relocate your files.
You need to restore the files from backup to be able to gain access to them again or if you don't have a backup, then hopefully you have a trace of the virus left so you can pay the $300 ransom to unencrypted the files. The ransomware that is doing the rounds is Cryptolocker and this scans local and network files and will encrypt a variety of files that it is configured to find.
There is a good write-up about it here:

I also got the idea to try to recover the files using the PDF Recovery Toolbox if you have not backup . Maybe something will work out. http://www.pdf.recoverytoolbox.com/
