Hello,
Do you mean that your memory stick properties shows you used space along with number of files and folder and you failed to see the files when you open it ?
Good Luck

Hello,

Try this 1

Follow all the steps given below

1) Disable the "Autoplay" feature. Click on the below link "Disable Autoplay",

and download the file --> Double-click on it and follow the instructions.

Disable Autoplay

2) Disable the "Autorun.inf". Click on the below link and follow the instructions.

First backup your registry. Click on Start --> Run --> Type regedt32 and press

Enter. "Registry Editor" will be opened.

Now backup your registry by going to "File --> Export" --> Save the file with

any name in your desired location.

Copy the text starting from "REGEDIT4" upto @="@SYS:DoesNotExist"

REGEDIT4            
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\IniFileMapping\Autorun.inf]            
@="@SYS:DoesNotExist"  

Open a "Notepad" --> Paste it --> Save the file as fix.reg

Note: Don't forget the extension "reg"

Now double-click on the fix.reg file and then click on "Yes" to merge it,

[Note : After following the above instructions, whenever you place any autoplay

CD\DVD all you have to do is go to "My Computer" --> Open the CD\DVD drive

--> You have to double-click on the setup file.]

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

https://ccm.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator".

This will remove the autorun.inf files from drives.

[Note : AutorunExterminator need Dot Net Framework. If its not installed in

your laptop then click on the below hyperlink ".NET Framework" and download it

.NET Framework]

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

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Here I assume your 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 drive letter.

Now check for your files in that drive.

5) After that, download the "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free" from the below

hyperlink "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free"

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck

Now perform Malwarebytes Anti-Malware scan to remove the malicious file from your PC and memory stick.(This scan process will take much time to complete)

Hello,
Try this 1
I would recommend both the C & D drives. If there are any malicious file left in the D drive it will get removed. In case if you are worried then backup your important data from D-Drive and then perform the scan.
Good Luck
