You should go in your command prompt


Type your pen drive location example : F:

then type: attrib

It will show you all hidden files on your pen drive.

To show them simplye type : attrib -s -h -r

Open your pen drive on my computer and you will see the hidden file
Thank you

You can use the following commands in MS-DOS "attrib -h -s -r ?:\* /s /d" where "?" is your drive (e.g e, f, g, etc). This will unhide all your files and folders in your drive, including the sub-files and sub-folders. Good luck with that. Peace !!
