Hello robi2015

You can format your external drive through data recovery software that has the ability to write zeros on a drive or either entering the following commands:
1. Open a new text document on the flash drive
2. Enter the following code in the text document:
attrib -s -h -r /s /d
cls
exit
3. Click File - Save as
4. Save it as "unhide.bat"
5. Close and delete the new text document
6. Double click on the "unhide" batch file

Hope that I helped.

Hi again,

Let's try something else. Take a look at these steps:
1. Open the Command prompt on your PC
2. Enter the following command
attrib -s -h -r X: /*.* / s / d
Be careful! Respect the spaces between words and script.
3. The letter "X" the change by letter that has assigned the USB device to the PC /that you can see in My Computer/. It can be anything, depends on each computer.
4. Then give "Enter" and wait about 30 seconds.
5. Browse the flash drive and delete the "RECYCLER" folder and if there is one called "Autorun" you need to delete it too.

Let me know if that helped.

2. Click on the Security tab.
3. Click Advanced in the lower right.
4. Click on the Owner tab.
5. Click Edit.
6. Click Other users or groups.
7. Click Advanced in the lower left corner.
8. Click Find Now.
9. Scroll through the results and double-click on your current user account.
10. Click OK to all of the remaining windows except the first Properties window.
11. Select your user account from the list up top and click Edit.
12. Select your user account from the list up top again and then in the pane below, check Full control under Allow, or as much control as you need.
13. When you see the security warning, click Yes.

Good luck.
