Try this 1

Follow all the steps given below.

1) Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your SD card

now. This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives and plug your SD card 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) Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and press Enter.

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

[If you are using Windows 7 then

Click on Start --> In search bar, type cmd. When the cmd appears in the search,

right-click on it and select the option "Run as administrator".]

Here I assume your pendrive 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 SD card drive letter.

Now check for your files.

3) After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Another alternate way is

Click on Start --> In search box, type folder options and press Enter.

[If you are using Windows XP then type folder options in Run and press Enter]

"Folder Options" will be opened. Click on the "View" tab.

Now select the option "Show hidden files, folders or drives" and uncheck the

check box "Hide protected operating system files" --> Click on "OK" button.

Now look for your files in your external drive.

Later undo the changes you have made by once again going to "Folder Options"

--> Click on "View" tab and click on "Restore Defaults" button --> Click on "OK".

But make sure you follow the steps 1 and 3. Steps 2 will remove the attributes

directly and make the files visible to you which adds an advantage.

Good Luck
I tried the last method and it helped ! How didn't I think of that...Thank you :)
