Iomega 1tb drive have files hidden


You might not have the appropriate software installed on your computer to show / read the files
IE: adobe flash , directx , win zip , codec , word ......
Determine if access is denied by a sharing violation because the folder and its files are in use by someone else or the computer itself. Wait several minutes, and then attempt to access the folder again. Go to the location where the file or its folder are stored on your computer. Lock files are hidden files in Microsoft Windows. Select "Show hidden files." The lock files for Windows applications have a ~ symbol in front of the file name. For example, for test.txt, the lock file is named ~test.txt. In UNIX, the lock file may be identified by an extension of .lock or .swp within in the file name. Delete the lock file. The locked file or folder unlocks. Reboot your computer, and bring it up in Safe Mode. This prevents the startup of many of the system services and programs that could be locking the files or folders. Attempt to access the folder location and its contents. If the folder is available, save the folder or its contents in a directory to which you have access. Record the active processes running on the computer and the programs available in Safe Mode. Then, log into the computer after a normal boot up. Review the applications running in the background in normal setup. One of these applications may be preventing access to the file folder and its contents. If there are applications that run in normal mode that do not run in Safe Mode, turn off those applications. Then, try to access the file folder again. b> Are the Security Permissions for the Folder or Its Contents Preventing Access? b> Check the file folder permissions by right-clicking on the folder and selecting "Properties." In the "Properties" dialog box, select the "Security" tab. The "Name" list box includes the user and group permissions. If there is no "read," "read and execute," or "write" permissions in your user profile, you do not have permission to view the file folder or its contents. These security permissions are typically set by system administrators. System administrators may be trying to prevent end users from altering system files that are critical to the computer running smoothly. Contact your system administrator, and request local administrative rights to the computer. This allows you to gain access to the files and folders that are restricted to administrators. Edit the system policies using administrative tools via the gpedit.msc program. Users can add, read and modify permissions for folders and other objects via this program. Full control is the best system policy, because it includes read, write, execute and modify rights. However, access to the gpedit.msc program may be restricted, as well. Go to the command line (press on the "Windows" and the "R" keys on your keyboard at the same time), and enter the CACLS command for the folder name. Use the command format: C:\> cacls <foldername> /E /G <username>:F CALCS stands for Change the Access Control ListS. This command allows you to add your user name to the security settings to permit access to the protected system folder when the gpedit.msc program is not available. Hope this helps.

My files are hidden. and i already used the options in control panel checking the box "show hidden files and folders". but it still wont reveal my files..it is so important to me..help...!!!


install antivirus software. it also happened to me before when i got infected by a virus. it hides all of my files. i just install the antivirus then clean my hard drive. the difficult part is showing my files. just follow these steps:
1. click start>>run>>type in "cmd"
2. type the location of your files. e.g. "d:", "e:", "f:", etc..
3. type "dir /ah"
*you will now see the files/folders with hidden attributes
4. type "attrib [name of file/folder] -r -a -s -h"
*if you're going to unhide files, you should type the whole name plus the extension (format).. example "attrib party.jpg -r -a -s -h"
**if you have folders with 6 characters and above, type the first 6 characters then "~1".. example for folder named "birthday"
"attrib birthd~1 -r -a -s -h"
5. you should repeatedly type dir /ah after unhiding some files/folders so you'll know if they're now working or not..
6. now check you flash drive.. it should be there..

Hi usually data do not be recover from dead flash drive but please try this option:
  • Be prepared beforehand

    Installing any software after data loss will increase the risk of the lost data being overwritten. A recovery program installed now is good insurance for your data.

    Free recovery software. There are many good free recovery programs out there. Installing one now may be the difference in keeping and loosing valuable data.

    Commercial recovery software

    Commercial recovery software will increase the chances of recovering important data. It's not free but can be well worth the price.
  • Step 2What to do

    Use your system as little as possible until you recover all of your lost files.

    The more activity taking place on your hard diskmag-glass_10x10.gif, the greater chance that some of your lost data will be over written. If you are trying to recover files from a media card, stop using that card immediately.

    I have a SanDisk Cruzer USB 8GB that is only allowing me 1.33 GB of space - says 6.594 GB used and there's nothing on here - how do I gain that storage space back? tx


    There might be a hidden file(s) on the drive that are taking up that space. Open the drive in My Computer, click Tools > Folder Options... On the View tab, click Show hidden files and folders. Then check the drive to see if any hidden files or folders are present.

    You can also try formatting the drive. Right click the drive in My Computer and click Format...

    I can't hide my drives even i navigate the gpedit


    you can't hide the drive, you can share or not share. However, you can hide and un-hide folder and files. go to the properties of the that folder or file, select hide.
    if you login or any one else login as you, they will see the folder or file as a "masked" not hidden.
    it will be hidden, when who ever login as themselves.
    the other thing you can do is to set the security on the drive, folder or file via security setting. if you don't allow certain individual to access the drive, folder or file. this has to be done via local administrator login.
    this is more secured. the individual require password to gain access to that area.
