  1. Hi all,

    My friend's USB flash memory has data (its drive shows that there is data in it) but when I double click on it to open it and see the contents, it doesn't show any folders and files! I did the following works:

    1- I scanned it by my updated kaspersky AV. but no threat found
    2- Scanned by windows defender tool. same result!
    3- scanned by malwarebytes anti-malware. same.
    4- cmd (run as administrator) -> go to its drive (e.g., H:, when H is my flash drive) and typing the attarib -s -h *.* /s /d command. It could not to show the data.

    All my attempts faced failure till now.

    Can anyone help me please?

    Go to cmd (run as administrator) -> go to its drive (e.g. H: where H is my flash drive) and type the attrib -s -h *.* /s /d
    Now flash will show the data.
    Your attrib spelling was wrong correct them
    Try it.
