Laptop saves files on memory stick as shortcuts only

Hi everyone , hopefully I will get the help I need from here . Recently when I try to save files from my dell laptop to a memory stick the files transfer but then they change into shortcut icons once on the memory stick with a file size of 1KB . Although when you click properties on the memory stick it shows that allot of memory has been taken up? . There is also a file called Win/ that seems to stay on the memory stick and when I try to delete it it disappears and then reappears seconds later . Sounds like a ghost in my pc but its very frustrating . Any advise ?
