most of the files on my memory stick disappeared. capacity 59.6GB, used 51GB, free 8.58GB some folders appear to contain correct files, but other folders that should contain files are empty. And when I select all of the folders instead of the entire memory stick, it shows only 17GB used. So 34GB of files are missing

Hello mezgeen,

Let's try something to make these files/folders unhide, shall we? Please, follow these steps:
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

Come here afterwards to tell me what happened. Good luck.
