I had earlier experienced the same problem of when you double click the Drives....the response is an open with dialog bo..If they were earlier opening when you doble clicked .Its most probable that a virus has infected your machine..Try to clean it wih a stong and updated antivirus..Also if you have to access the drives try to right click on them and click explore on the pop-up menu..
Try opening them in windows explorer..for option two

Please check that you do not have any hidden folders from Control Panel, Appearance and Personalization, Folder Options.
If "Show hidden files" option is selected, open the cmd and use the attrib command. You should write
attrib -h -r -s /s /d z:\*.* (where "z" is the letter of your drive).
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.
Hi, It is due to virus activity. Some virus make the contents
of the drive hidden, thats why user can't see the files. This can be fixed and data would be available to you. However, there are number of steps involved. It is
suggested that go
to FOLDER OPTIONS - and select 'SHOW HIDDEN FILES & FOLDERS' and uncheck/ Deselect 'HIDE PROTECTED SYSTEM FILES'.
It would show the
hidden files/ folders, if the system not infected Otherwise, from the clean/ virus free system you can see your data and copy all
the required files/data. Select the required files and right-click and
change the properties of the file by un-checking the hidden attribute.
Please note that you can not change the properties (hidden attribute of the files) if the files are marked as system files. To change the attribute of such folders you can download and use iReset.
Also, make sure that you have a good antivirus
installed and its updated. Scan your system and clean it.
Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya! CreativeTECH
The file which you want to open or see must be hidden. To show all hidden files do the following: Type control.exe in the Run box this will open control panel. Now double click on Floder Option and click on view tab. Now under Hidden Files and Folders select Show hidden files and folders. Now click on apply and then ok. So steps will show all the hidden files and folders, now you must be able to see the file.
you should be able to click to open folder options, click the "view" tab, and under advnced settings, click show hiden files and then click OK. Don't do this on a web browser--you have to do it from a Microsoft program.
