  2. It's almost certain that the virus or trojans did this to your drive as I met this kind of problem before. but never mind you can follow this way to get rid of it.
    Step 1: Check if the files or folders are in hidden mode.
    click on "Start" -->Run --> type ‘cmd’ and click OK.
    Then enter this command.
    attrib -h -r -s /s /d f:\*.*
    You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and paste it (note: I assume your drive letter as F).
    Fix Step 2: Download an anti-virus program to kill the virus.
