OK, so you don't have any files because you have FORMATTED THE DRIVE, and WIPED them all away!

Try this 1

Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

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

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

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check your pen drive for the files.

Good Luck

Hi,

It might be possible that your drive is affected by some kind of virus which made your drive data invisible. I suggest you to scan the drive with the antivirus software and then reconnect your drive to check if it starts showing your files.
