I have so many movies, files, folders & musics in my external hard disk . Due to some virus or something I don't know when I opened the external hard disk I can't see some folders inside it, but if I wrote at the top at the search bar the folder name or the movie name which are in inside the hard disk I can find the folder . So please if you can tell me what is the problem .

Try this 1.

May be the files are in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run-->type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your external hard drive 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 : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your external hard drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

Now check for your files in external hard drive.

Good Luck.
