Hello vijay,

Please, try the following steps and share what happened:
  • Open a new text document on the flash drive
  • Enter the following code in the text document:

attrib -s -h -r /s /d
cls
exit
  • Click File - Save as "unhide.bat"
  • Close and delete the new text document
  • Double click on the "unhide" batch file


Hope that I helped.

It doesn't allow me to create any file..there is no option for creating a new text document in right click options...

Hi again,

Let's try this:
1. Open the Command prompt and enter the following command:
attrib -s -h -r X: /*.* / s / d
where you substitute the X letter with the corresponding one in My Computer representing the pendrive
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script.
2. Then press "Enter" and wait about 30 seconds. Then close the console windows and the "task manager".
3. Finally, browse the flash drive and delete the "RECYCLER" folder and if there is one called "Autorun" you need to delete that too.

Good luck.

Hey,

To take ownership of the drive and reset permissions try these steps, but firstly make sure you are logged as administrator:
Right click the drive, click Properties.
Click the Security tab.
Click the Advanced button (not the Edit button).
Click the Owner tab.
Click the Edit button.
Highlight your username.
Check the box for Replace owner on subcontainers and objects.
Click OK to close each dialog until it begins applying permissions.
If you get any errors, click Continue.
When done, close the Properties dialog. It must be closed and re-opened.
Right click the drive, click Properties.
Click the Security tab.
Click the Advanced button (not the Edit button).
Click the Permissions tab.
Click the Change Permissions button.

Best of luck.
