    Folder is hidden & hidden check mark is disabled in my USB pendrive.

    I scanned with antivirus and now no virus in pendrive though all my files are hidden and they have shortcuts of folder visible, if i nned to enter in folder, i need to enter fila path manually.

    any solution?

    i'm interested in this as well. my checkbox isn't disabled but i can't see my appata folder even with it selected. i can see all of the other hidden files/folders except that, but if i type it in the address bar it opens the folder fine.

    sorry no answer though :(

    Are you sure they aren't marked as system files?

    solved

    They were marked as system files by virus so i wasnt able to see.. i enabled to view system files in options then i can see folder but yet cant unhide.

    i googled and found solution.

    I tried attrib -s -h folder name & it worked for that folder. Then I tried attrib -s -h /s /d which did all the folders, sub-folders in a single go.
