I can't see my files and folders in my pen drive after scanning with "Advanced Options - clean files" with nod antivirus software. Although files are not in hidden mode but still it contains my folders as I found it with "properties".

Could you please suggest how can I fix this problem?
System Configuration: Windows XP / Internet Explorer 8.0

If you did not format your flash drive, then check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:
  • Click on the below link and download the file AutorunExterminator.
  • Extract it --> Double-click on AutorunExterminator --> Plug your pendrive now.
  • This will remove the autorun.inf files from your pendrive and also from drives.

Step 2:
  • Click on Start -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.
  • Here I assume, your pendrive 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: Replace the letter g with your flash drive letter.
  • Now check for your files in Pen Drive.

Step 3:

Note: Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck!
