Try this 1

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.

You have tried another computer?

If another computer does not work, your drive is damaged.

Sorry

Lets try this very last chance

# Download UsbFix on your computer, and execute it.
# It will launch automatically, and a shortcut will be created on your desktop.
# Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, external drives, etc...) Do not open them.
# Choose " Deletion " option.

#The computer will re-start, and it may be longer than usually.

# UsbFix will display a message at re-start.

# Click "OK" to start cleaning.
# Copy/paste the report here.

Dear Sanju

I have given you all the tricks of the trade. I have no more.

As for magic or miracles, I failed the course.

Looks like your pen is damaged, it happends when removing the stick from the computer too often without taking the necessary safety precautions.

Sorry
