Try this 1.

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 External

hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your External hard drive and also from

the drives.

Step 2:

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 : Replace the letter g with your External hard drive letter.

Now check for your files in External 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.

Try the following:

Download <b>Unhide.exe</b> to your Desktop:

<a href="https://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/unhide.exe" target="_blank">http://download.bleepingcomputer.co...</a>

If the file does not download, copy/paste the following link >without brackets< in the address bar of your browser:

Right-click on unhide.exe and select: Run as Administrator
Allow the program to run.

This program removes the hidden attribute from all the files on your hard drives.

Let us know how it goes.

Next, please download <b>RogueKiller</b>
Save it to your Desktop.

Now, close all open programs.

For Vista/Windows 7, right click the file and select: Run as Administrator
For XP, simply double-click RogueKiller.exe

When prompted, type <b>1</b> and hit Enter.

An RKreport.txt should appear on your Desktop.

Note: If the program is blocked, do not hesitate to try several times. If it really does not work (it could happen), rename it to winlogon.exe

Please post the contents of the RKreport.txt in your reply.
