Try this:

1. click start>>run>>type in "cmd"

2. type the location of your pendrive.. e.g. "d:", "e:", "f:", etc..

3. type "dir /ah"
You will now see the files/folders with hidden attributes
4. type "attrib [name of file/folder] -r -a -s -h"
*Iif you're going to unhide files, you should type the whole name plus the extension (format).. example "attrib party.jpg -r -a -s -h"
*Iif you have folders with 6 characters and above, type the first 6 characters then "~1".. example for folder named "birthday"
"attrib birthd~1 -r -a -s -h"

5. you should repeatedly type dir /ah after unhiding some files/folders so you'll know if they're now working or not..

6. now check you flash drive.. it should be there..

Good Luck
Thanx Bionik for helping me too,i am getting back all my hidden files except one of my files that contain two words i.e. "Happy Day", whenever I type "attrib Happy Day -r -a -s -h" it says parameter is incorrect. Is there any other command for this where a single folder contain two words..pliz help

Try this 1
Click on Start --> Run --> Type control folders and press Enter.
"Folder Options" window 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.
Good Luck

Try this 1
1) First remove the autorun.inf file.
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 drives and plug your handy drive to remove the autorun.inf file from it also.
[Note : Make sure Dot Net Framework is installed in your PC.
Click on the below link and download the Dot Net Framework.]
2) Copy the folder into one of your drive and check if you can remove the hidden option. If the problem still exists then create a new folder (Example: Test) and copy the contents which are there in the infected folder to the new folder "Test".
Good Luck
