Hi moyukh,

It is possible that your anti virus has put those files in the quarantine section. Please check that. If they are not there, connect the pendrive and check if you have some hidden files on it. This can be done from Folder Options ? View Tab.
If the option Show hidden files and folders is selected, use the CMD and type attrib -h -r -s /s /d L:\*.* ,
where L is the drive letter of the pendrive. Please check the topic below for some additional suggestions.

Hope this helps
