  • 1. click start>>run>>type in "cmd"
  • 2. type the location of your flash drive.. e.g. "d:", "e:", "f:", etc..
  • 3. type
    dir /ah
    • you will now see the files/folders with hidden attributes
  • 4. type
    attrib [name of file/folder] -r -a -s -h
    • if you're going to unhide files, you should type the whole name plus the extension (format).. example
      attrib party.jpg -r -a -s -h
      • if you have folders with 6 characters and above, type the first 6 characters then "~1".. example for folder named "birthday"
        attrib birthd~1 -r -a -s -h
  • 5. you should repeatedly type dir /ah after unhiding some files/folders so you'll know if they're now working or not..
  • 6. now check you flash drive.. it should be there..

to all... who use new windows command systems where dir name contains space in between folders
use attrib command like
attrib *.* -r -a -s -h /s /d

* /s attributes processes matching file in the current folder and subfolders.
* /d attributes processes folders also.
