Win 7 - open the drive on the computer, click the "organize" drop down menu on the left - go to "folder and search options" - select the second tab (view) - select "show hidden files, folder, and drives" - Hit apply then ok - all of your files should be visible now - select all files by hitting "CTRl" + "A" - right click on one of the files and select properties - uncheck hidden - when/if another window opens select the best option for you - now all your folders should be visible again - you can repeat the first few steps to make your hidden files invisible again if you wish.

SOURCE: My Psp still have it's contents but when i connect

Maybe the drive is partitioned into 2 or 3 partitions and only one is visible.
Try going into START -CONTROL PANEL - ADMINISTRATIVE TOOLS - STORAGE and see what drives show up there. You may be able to assign a hidden drive a letter from there and it will be visible. NB Watch out though because changing the drive permanently may mean it wont work in the PSPwhen you put it back.

How do I get a file back that was hide?


Main Menu > Media > (highlight pictures) > press Blackberry button > Explore > Media Card > Blackberry > pictures > press Blackberry button > show hidden
In short, navigate to the folder where you hid the folder/file and press the Blackberry button and choose show hidden. you'll then see the hidden item in the list as a semi-transparent item. Highlight the item > press the Blackberry button > Properties > uncheck "Hidden". You can then go back and access the file as you normally would.


OR if you have a PC, use windows explorer & go to the Media Card folder where you hid the folder, in the Tools Menu- Folder Options- View tab- select "show hidden files and folders".
You folder will be visible (in windows) but slightly transparent.
Right-click the folder, select Properties.. uncheck the 'hidden' checkbox and click 'Apply'

How can I find the files on my 1tb, seagate external drive?


You maybe removed the driver for the hard drive when you ran the anti virus. Those programs can do some strange things. If you click on the start, then computer. It will show all hard drives on your system. If you cannot find your files. I would think your computer does not see the external hard drive. To reinstall the driver, you would need to go to the driver's manufactures web site to down load or yours may have came with a disk. If so just run the disk. Could do a system restore , but that would be last option .

I have a dell laptop and a HP desktop computer, and a 1TB Iomega external hard drive. THE PROBLEM..the video folders/files can be accessed on the laptop but not on the desktop ? the folders are empty


Hi,
it might be that the files are hidden and the option on the desktop to show hidden files is not enabled.. Try enabling hidden files and folders. Start--Control Panel--- Folder Options---View and then enable hidden files and folders.
Hope it helps,

My WD 1TB hard disk drive shows me loaded with 300GB capacity of folders but when they are not seen on my pc


1) Open any folder on your your computer and go to: Tools > Folder options > View tab > check "Show hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide protected operating system files". 2) Look at your hard disk again, if you still can't see any files on it, there must be an error of your disk. To solve it, go to: My Computer (or Win+E keyboard shortcut) > Right click on the drive representing the 1TB hard disk > Properties > Tools > Check Now... > Check both boxes to fix errors.

Lacie USB 2.0 No files or folders displayed in backup folder


Did you try showing "hidden folders and files"?
In the Explorer, select the Tools menu, and pick Folder Options.
Select the View tab and in the list enable "show hidden files and folders".
You can also try showing system files (so choose not to hide them).

That should show you all files and folders on the disk.

Do make sure you are logged in as a user with admin rights.
