Hello,

Try this 1
  • 1) Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator" : https://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator
    • Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your External hard drive now.
  • 2) Click on Start --> Run --> Type control folders and press Enter.
    • "Folder Options" will be opened.
    • Click on "View" tab --> Select the option "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck the check box "Hide protected operating system files" and click on OK. Now look for your files in your flash drive.


Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
If you are using Window Vista or 7 then Click on Start --> In search bar, type cmd. When
the command prompt option appears in the search list, right-click on it and select the option
"Run as administrator"]
Here I assume your drive letter 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 drive letter where the files are hidden.
Now look for your files.
Good Luck
