Open the "Registry Editor" ("Start" >> "Run", then type "regedit" and Enter). Expand to the following key:


If the value "Hidden" (on right side)exists, double-click on it to edit its value to (1 = show hidden, 2 = do not show) 

If the value "Hidden"(right side) does not exist, create it as follows

right click on Advanced ---->Click New------>Click DWORD----> Rename it as Hidden ------>Right clik Hidden---->Click Modify---->Enter value 

Name: Hidden
Value: 1
(1: show hidden, 2: do not show)

Thanking you

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.

I would suggest doing it from the file explorer and not the DOS. That is assuming your are using a a OS like windows, and not DOS. First you need to go to Folder and search options and make sure you can see hidden files and folders. Then navigate to you USB drive and right click the folder, go to properties and and hide it. If you aren't sure on how do that exactly, just reply back with your OS information and what your trying to do, and I will give more exact detail oriented steps.

This is a funny one. It appears the folders are empty and therefore one assumes the files were dragged off and placed somewhere else. As it is a flash drive there is no recovery possible. Just make sure you have in your control panel and then folder options and then view show hidden files and folders ticked. If you still cannot see them then try another computer and see if they can be seen on that. One other option is stick the flash into a mac and see what happens with that. If no the sorry you have lost them.

My pendrive is working,but some folders are not showing the files.I checked in another pc , it is opening in that. what should i do?

I think it could be due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files.
It is suggested that go to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select SHOW HIDDEN FILES. It may show the hidden files. Otherwise, from the system you can see your data, copy all the required files/data. Select the required files and righ-click and change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute. After copying data and ensuring that the data is on hard drive just format pen drive. Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus installed and its updated.

Let me know if any further clarification is required. Hope this helps! Dont forget to rate the solution!!
