I can’t see the files and folders in my pen drive after scanning with “Advanced Options – clean files” with nod antivirus software. The files are not in hidden mode and I know they are on the pen drive as I can tell from looking in “properties”. How can I fix this problem?
If you have not formatted your flash drive, check whether the files are not in hidden mode following these steps:
Click on the link below and download the file “AutorunExterminator”
Extract it –> Double-click on “AutorunExterminator” –> Plug your pendrive in
This will remove the autorun.inf files from your pen drive and also from drives.
Click on “Start” –> Run –> then type cmd and click on OK.
Assuming your pendrive is G, enter the following command:
attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:*.*
You can copy the above command then right click in the Command Prompt and paste it.
NB: Replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.
Now check for your files in the pen drive.
Download the Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware from the below link
Update it by performing “Full Scan”
NB: Default selected option is “Quick Scan”.
