How to Show Hidden Files & Folders of a Flash Drive Caused by Virus

Show Hidden Files

USB flash drive or Memory Card is a great device for sharing files and folders, audio and video, software etc. But at the same time this type of device is also responsible for spreading virus too! A virus can be easily copied from one PC to another by USB flash drives. 

When a PC has no virus protection or not having enough protection be careful when inserting your flash drive in that PC. Because it can affect the software or program stored on it. And other  files like image, audio or video generally not affected by virus. But they may be hidden permanently. 

So, in this post, I am gonna show how to view the hidden files of a flash drive. Let's find out how.
  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Now click on Folder Options located under tools menu. 
  3. Now hit on View Tab.
  4. Now select the Show hidden files and folders.
  5. Deselect both Hide protected operating files and Hide extensions for known file types.
  6. Now click on Apply > OK.

Note: This system works for all versions of windows. But in windows 7 and 8 you may not find the menu bar. In windows 7 to show menu bar press the Alt key then select the tools menu. And Windows 8 users will find it in Windows Explorer at the top right corner of the screen located under view tab named as Options

Tips: To protect your files from viruses you can simply store the files in .zip format. Because a virus can't enter into the zipped files normally. To do so, first select the files you wanna zip and then click right button of mouse and send to Compressed (zipped) folder
