Hello,

Try this 1.

Check whether files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" --> In search box, type cmd and press "Enter".

"Command Prompt" will be opened.

Here I assume your pen 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 : Don't forget to replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

Now check for your files in your pen drive.

Good Luck.

Hello,
Try this 1
First make sure to check the folder options once again. If you PC is infected then even when changing the option to show hidden files and system files, it won't let you change it.
OR
Download file commander application from the below link and install it
http://www.freecommander.com/
Plug your pen drive ---> open file commander--->select your pen drive. It will help you to access hidden files.
Good Luck
