Could you please explain what you are trying to do?
Are you trying to reveal the hidden files on a USB device or are you trying to remove a virus?

-Revealing hidden files and folders-
1. Open the drive you are wanting to view the hidden files and folders in.
2. Click Tools on your menu bar and select "Folder Options" (If you cannot see your menu bar, you may need to press "alt" on your keyboard.
3. A box will popup, select the "View" tab on top and look down the list of tickboxes, you should come across one that says "Show hidden files and folders", select it. Click apply and ok.
(To view system hidden files and folders, untick the option: "Hide protected operating system files", it is not recommended to have this unticked.)

If it's a virus, I suggest you run a scan on a up to date Virus scanner, once threats have been removed. I would also recommend formatting the drive (once you have backed up any neccessary data).

Show hidden files


to unhide file extensions to see what you have in XP open my computer (or windows explorer) Tools/Folder Options/View change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

to unhide file extensions in win7, vista go to my computer (or windows explorer) Organize/folder and search options/view change 'Do not show hidden files and folders' to 'Show hidden files and folders' uncheck 'Hide extensions for known file types' if you wish you can uncheck 'Hide protected operating system files'

In win8 I'm not sure how to get to it unless you change to show classic view somehow

Hide file folder WITH A password


For the most part you need 3rd party software, or a USB drive with security built in. Just remember you are at the mercy of those companies if you lose the password. Plus some software will only works locally. For instance if someone removes the drive and connects it to another computer the files are wide open.
Win 7 Ult and Ent (high end editions have Bitlocker built in.
A simple way is to create a folder within his login account docs and choose hidden as the properties. The only way to see it would be to change folder properties and make hidden files visible. This is just cloaking, because anybody with admin rights can see them.

Was using my 1TB and then all memory (pictures) dissapeared. Still shows memory used/available, just all the files are gone.


Those files are hidden folders.
For that connect it to computer then open my computer go to tools menu->folder option.
then click view tab enable "show hidden files and folders" and disable check box of "hide system files" then apply then you can see your files as hidden folder.
then open it then copy all files to local drive also scan computer and harddrive with updated antivirus because it (harddrive) is infected of virus.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

All the pictures i had have disappeared and my memory card says no images! when i tried to get them processed it just kept counting up images to over a thousand..


Hi. The most probable cause for this problem is a virus. Your memory card might be infected and the virus might have hidden your files. You can check this by scanning the memory card using an updated antivirus, then unhiding all hidden files. To do this (after scanning the memory card), open Windows Explorer, go to "Tools >> Folder Options >> View" On the advanced settings, Hidden Files and Folders option, click the "Show hidden files and folders" button. Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". Click OK to save the settings.
Now go to your memory card via "My Computer" or Windows Explorer to view the files (images). You can unhide them so they may be accessible again.
Hope this helps.

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.
