You must change the setting for folders to show hidden files
That option is under controllpanel/folders
If you dont change that otion you'l never see the hiden files and folders, it's easy done, enter controllpanel, enter folders, under the second flap you will see an option "Handel hidden files and folder", chang that one from "hidde" to "show", press OK
Thats it!

Good luck

Malware on external hard drive is hidding files


OK you harddrive is infected with Malware. This Malware creats shortcuts of each folder and Hide the all those your main folder.
You can scan your Hardrive with fully updated Anti Virus apllication .

To see all your original folder you can enable your Shown hidden File option from your Folder option--View--uncheck show hidden files and folder--and uncheck hide protected operating system files.

Here is the step to unhide your all files and folder in one go.
Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

http://en.kioskea.net/download/download-11613-autorun-exterminator

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your Hard drive now.

This will remove the autorun.inf files from your flash drive and also from drives.

Step 2:

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

Here I assume your flash 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 flash drive letter.

Now press "Enter".

All the pictures i had have disappeared and my memory card says no images! when i tried to get them processed it just kept counting up images to over a thousand..


Hi. The most probable cause for this problem is a virus. Your memory card might be infected and the virus might have hidden your files. You can check this by scanning the memory card using an updated antivirus, then unhiding all hidden files. To do this (after scanning the memory card), open Windows Explorer, go to "Tools >> Folder Options >> View" On the advanced settings, Hidden Files and Folders option, click the "Show hidden files and folders" button. Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". Click OK to save the settings.
Now go to your memory card via "My Computer" or Windows Explorer to view the files (images). You can unhide them so they may be accessible again.
Hope this helps.

MY Western Digital external Hard drive is only showing some photos from certain files. Tried to copy file to desk top and only some of the photos copied over. HELP


What do you mean by only certain files? from photo's?
Its possible they are hidden files.
Go to tools then folder options. then view
In the hidden files and folders section set it to show hidden files and folders. and take the check mark out of hide extensions for known file types and hide protected operating system files. check for your files after that.

Once you have it off I would suggest changing those settings back.

Unable to activate show hidden folders


You are right that this is because of a virus attack. The virus has changed somethign in the registry. Follow the below methods:
Method 1:Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.
Go to this key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\
Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced

In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect.
Method 2:1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R)
2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”.
3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\
Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL
4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key.
5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1.
6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy!

My Windows Explorer does not show extentions


By default, file extensions for known file types are hidden in Windows XP. However, you can change this setting so that file extensions are shown for files in a certain folder or for all files on your hard disk.
To show file extensions, first open any folder on your hard drive, such as "My Computer" or "My Documents." Then select "Folder Options..." from the Tools menu as shown below.
545a526.gif When the Folder Options window opens, click the View tab. This will show the file and folder view settings.
95b32b0.gif One of the options under Advanced settings is "Hide extensions for known file types." If this option is checked, uncheck the checkbox and click Apply or OK. This setting is system wide, so unchecking this box will make file extensions appear in all folders.
If you decide to hide file extensions at a later time, you can check the box again and click OK to revert back to the previous settings.
