Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*
--> Press Enter

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check your pen drive for the files.

Good Luck
Thank you

For those who can't get this done,
Try right-clicking on the drive and selecting 'add to archive", after that's done, copy the. Rar or zip file into the computer and unrar it,

I got my files that way,
