can’t see files and folder on pen drive solved ( solution)


windows 7
Cant see files and folders

Some times due to virus infection we can not see the files and folders on a pendrive. Consider when you have priceless data on pendrive.

Even i suffered from such a problem and found a working solution for same.

Here i am sharing with everyone.







STEP 1 :

Usually this problem is due to autorun virus.  So remove it by installing auto run exterminator.

Download it here

Once downloaded, install it. Its a very small program and works really well. No virus or spyware tested.



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.



check your pendrive now. You ll find all your files there.


NOTE: its strongly recommended that you install any malware removal program . As per me malwarebyte is best. (Google it for download)




1. Go to “Tools” and click “Folder Option”
2. Choose the View tab
3. UnCheck the “hide protected operating system files (Recommended)”
