i could not find one of my folder. It totally disappeared from my external drive. I searched using the search function in my Window 10. Please help. Thanks.

PS: I tried to search for one of the file in that folder and I could not find it as well. FYI, I tried the control function in the "run"-whereas, I removed "hide" folder functions. Still I could not find them. Any suggestion much appreciate!!!!

Try this 1.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your external drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

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

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

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your External hard drive letter.

Now check for your files in External Drive.

Good Luck.
