Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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).
