i m having 8GB sandisk pendrive.it has occupied space but files has not showing please help me immediately.
and i did some tricks to recover but not recovering my problems by this
1. click start>>run>>type in "cmd"
2. type the location of your flash drive.. e.g. "d:", "e:", "f:", etc..
3. type "dir /ah"
*you will now see the files/folders with hidden attributes
4. type "attrib [name of file/folder] -r -a -s -h"
*if you're going to unhide files, you should type the whole name plus the extension (format).. example "attrib party.jpg -r -a -s -h"
**if you have folders with 6 characters and above, type the first 6 characters then "~1".. example for folder named "birthday"
"attrib birthd~1 -r -a -s -h"
5. you should repeatedly type dir /ah after unhiding some files/folders so you'll know if they're now working or not..
6. now check you flash drive.. it should be there..
there are 2 folders i want to unhide. one is under the name of "New Folder" and the other one as "New folder"
i managed to unhide "New Folder" but i don't know what to use on the cmd in order for it to recognize the second "new folder" . it appears as "New folder <2>"
any suggestion ?
