Since you can see it in a DOS windows, that folder must be marked as system, and by default Windows hides system files from you when you use the File Explorer. Go back into a DOS window, go the the root of the pendrive, and type this command:

attrib -s /D *.*

That will remove the system property, and it will do so for all files and folders on the drive.
