Your Files are HIDDEN in your Flash Drive, Here is the Solution.


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? 


Try this:. 

If you have not formatted your flash drive, check whether the files are not in hidden mode following these steps: 

Step 1: 

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. 

Step 2: 

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. 

Step 3: 

Download the Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware from the below link 

Update it by performing “Full Scan” 

NB: Default selected option is “Quick Scan”. 

Good luck!
