Hello,

Try this 1.

Check whether files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" --> In search box, type cmd and press "Enter".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Here I assume your pen drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

[You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.]

Note : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

Now check for your files in your pen drive.

Good Luck.

Serveral times I formatted the usb and again copy files into usb but when after removing usb recheck the folder is shwoing empty but space is full as per file

I think it may be usb problem

BUT NO BENEFIT

Or
Click on Start --> Search box, type control folders and press enter. Folder Options will be opened.
Click on "View" tab --> Select the option "Show hidden files, folders and drives" and uncheck the check box
"Hide protected operating system files" and click on OK. Now look for your files in your pen drive.
Good Luck.

Hello,
Try this 1
First make sure to check the folder options once again. If you PC is infected then even when changing the option to show hidden files and system files, it won't let you change it.
OR
Download file commander application from the below link and install it
http://www.freecommander.com/
Plug your pen drive ---> open file commander--->select your pen drive. It will help you to access hidden files.

Bravo! It worked, I can seen my whole files, by this command. some friends facing problem to implement it, I want to suggest all of you as I experienced, that my computer takes some time to drive this command. I just pasted it. changed desired drive name (as already mentioned in main topic), pressed "Enter", Wrote "Exit" And Minimized Command Window to let it its time. And forget, after some time it will be run itself. Thank You.

attrib -r -s -h /s /d g:\*.*

This Code works, just write it in the Run program. And place your location if its H:\ or I:\ or G:\ or E:\
