I have a kingston 15GB USB and when I plug it in it shows me instead of usualy KINGSTON, it shows me Removable Disk. It also shows that it is not empty: 60,08MB free of 15,0GB. But when I click on it, it says Empty folder. I allready look for hidden folder option but nothing. Is there any way to see my files? What can I do? It seems like the files are there but I cant reach them (virus?). I scann for viruses witm malwarebytes...but also 0. Doesnt even find folders. Please help me, I need those files on my USB.

I allready check for hidden files, but nothing. In disk manager it shows my pen drive and it shows that there is 60,08MB free of 15,0GB. I also run antivirus and nothing.

1) Insert your removable media in the USB port. Notice the drive letter (say, h)

2) Open a command prompt (start>run>type 'cmd' without comma>right click on the black icon that appears> "run as administrator")

3) Type following and press enter:
attrib -h -r -s /D /S h:\*.*

So, if your drive letter is k, then the command you type will be:
attrib -h -r -s /D /S k:\*.*

4) Check your drive, you should be able to see ALL folders and files.

convert C:\Users\Samsung to C:\
the command as below;
After reaching C:\Users\Samsung type cd\ enter
Then proceed with attrib -h -r -s /D /S h:\*.* instead of h may be f or g that means
attrib -h -r -s /D /S f:\*.* or attrib -h -r -s /D /S g:\*.* or attrib -h -r -s /D /S i:\*.*

Best of luck.
