click start, then go to RUN click then type cmd then press enter
then change the directory. go to the directory of your flash drive then type ATTRIB -S -H *.* /S /D press enter.. wait for a minute if the directory appear. type exit then open your flash drive

try it on the start menu below and try search and click on the box that say show hidden files on the usb but i'm not sure about one thing that it might infected by virus that it automatically hidden the files
Use a program that last opened one of the files - Dec 28, 2009 at 04:02 AM
Thank you
This way costs nothing and needs no add ons. Just go to word or excel, and on the recent files list, click one of the missing files from the list, and voila!! it is back. Now navigate around your files in the open or save as prompts, and rescue them to a safe location. I think the trick here is that the program remembers the pointer that has been removed (hence you not being able to see the files).
