Hello
Hopefully this will get you going.  I am assuming that you are using Windows.

  1. Click on START > Run > type "Explorer" (no quotes)
  2. In Explorer, click on Tools > Folder Options...
  3. Click on the View tab.
  4. In Advanced settings:  about 8 lines down is a folder option called "Hidden files and folders".  Right below that are two options, and the one you want to select is "Show hidden files and folders"
  5. Then click Apply at the bottom of the menu.
  6. If you wish this to be a permanent feature across all menus, click on "Apply to All Folders" button near the top of the same menu.
  7. Click "OK"
  8. Now you are good to go!

Hopefully this helps you out.  If it did, please vote on the solution.  Thank you.
Ken

How to view hidden files in Windows


Files can be hidden in Windows for a variety of reasons. Certain system files can be hidden so that a careless user doesn't accidentally delete or modify them. Personal files might be hidden by their creator so that other users can't view them. And malware or spyware programs might install themselves and hide the files to make them harder to find.

But whatever the reason a file is hidden, you can view hidden files if you want to in Windows. To set Windows to show hidden files, open a folder or go into Windows Explorer and under the Tools menu, click Folder Options. Go to the View tab, and under the heading "Hidden files and folders," click the radio button next to "Show hidden files and folders." Then click Apply or OK.

Now, when you view a folder that has a hidden file or subfolder in it, that file or folder will be visible. When you see a hidden file in a Windows folder, it will be listed right along with the rest of the files in that folder, but its icon or thumbnail will appear faded and pixellated. You can open it and access it just like any other file, but it's technically "hidden."

To change a file's attributes so it's not hidden anymore, right click on the file and select Properties. In the General tab, at the bottom, uncheck the box next to "Hidden" and click Apply. Now, when you view the folder where that file resides, it will look the same as the other files. (If you want to make the file hidden again, just go back into its properties and re-check the "Hidden" box and click Apply.)

Dvd drive is full of files but only shows a empty file folder, how do you open the file


The folder might contain a lot of what are called "hidden files"

To view hidden files, press the "Alt" key in your explorer window and go to "View -> Folder Options"
Then navigate to the View tab and under advanced settings select "Show hidden files and folders"

Or:

Go to the Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Folder options -> View -> Advanced settings -> Show hidden files and folders

That should fix it

In My Computer Disk drive E - one of folder using earlier, now iam not find the same folder file. If i create in the same name folder showing the error message contains.... the existing file already...


you just accidentally hide your newly created folder. go to tools it in your upper view. click the folder options. > view > click the show hidden files and folders > and also unchecked the hide protected operating system file (Recommended). after that you will see the folder that you create. im sure virus and trojans are responsible for that.
