Hello,

Try 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

Hi Manoj,

Basically, right now it is not possible to access the drive? There may be some file corruption or drive failure. I hope you will resolve this with what Computertech suggested, but if the issue persists, please check if the drive is correctly listed in Disk Management. You may also try using the command
chkdsk D: /f from the Command Prompt, where you should replace D with your pen drive's letter. If the information on the drive is important, try using a data recovery tool. If you recover all the important data, format the drive.

Hope this helps
