Hello everyone,

How are you?? It is my first time here and i think it is the place to be for my question. I hope you can help me out guys. Well, i have a HP Pavilion Entertaiment PC, x64, with W10 (upgraded). After i did the upgrade, everything went ok but for some reason i had to restore as new and i choosed to backup my files into many different Pen Drive's. So, after the pc's restore was done i plugged in my 16 GB usb and my usb windows popuout with all the folders inside BUT once i clicked on them it says "empty folder" so i was shocked. Below and image of it:




But when i turn into the USB storage, to see the space that i used for backing up my files, it says is almost full -the same space as i have used-, an image to ilustrate:



Another image that shows the "empty folder" problem:



So resuming:

I have a almost full PenDrive with "empty" folders BUT nothing inside them -or still it says so. I have tried many methods: USB show, Attrib on CMD, Recuva and AutorunExterminator.

I do not know what else to do!! I am Desesperate!! Can anyone of you guide me to solve this please. Thanks in advance.

Hello

Sticky wicket I say.

Try this it just may work:

# Download USB Fix
  • Launch it, a shortcut will be created on your desktop.

  • Choose "Clean" option.
  • A pop-up will follow
    Connect all your external data sources to your PC (Usb keys, sd cards external drives, etc...)
  • Once you're ready, click "OK".
  • While cleaning, you will lose access to your desktop, but this is normal.

The numbers of analyzed and infected elements are displayed.

# Copy/paste the report here.

ry this 1

Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* --> Press Enter

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check your pen drive for the files.

Good Luck
