Try this 1.

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:

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link


Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

Thank you , This is great. It worked I am so happy. 5******
Thank you .. This worked .. attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*
I had the same problem, the pen drive was not displaying the folders but these folders were there. I solved it by going into the Tools>>>Folder Options>>>View and checked the option "Hide protected Operating System Files" and the folders came back. I guess some virus attack made these folders as the system folder and these got hidden.
