  • click start, then go to run then type
    then press enter
  • 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
i try in the command prompt then I type the attrib -s -h *.* /s /d, but the directory f:\ not recognized as an internal or external command.

So, what can I do?
it worked!!!!
thanks a lot...
you type the directory example g: dir/ah then the rest of the code has got spaces between..thts the code provided by faith above. it weks!!!!!!
How do you change the directory? When I type cmd and press enter, drive H comes up and it won't let me go back and change it. My flash drive is drive E. Please help. I lost some very valuable work files.
Savoy: type e: to change directory.
your files are hidden
go to tools menu and folder options
select show hidden files
and there u go
Yayy!! succeed in retrieving my deleted data back from my flash drive...

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
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

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).
