my pendrive was having data (mostly photos, some videos and some word files). The problem began when i plugged my pendrive in one of desktops at my office, as soon as i removed pendrive from pc trying to read some files from the pendrive i was shocked to see that it was showing me only some photos (around 200mb out of 7gb,which were initially present on it) then i removed my pendrive without any further delay and try to use it on another laptop but it was still showing me only photos and also on right clicking pendrive and seeing for used space it was showing used space as 7gb.
i was not able to acess or copy any other photos from the pendrive.
Please please help me recover those photos, as they are of very much importance to me.
also i tried one method mentioned in your community
i tried to access pendrive throu command prompt
initially command prompt was like this
i used cd..
and went to
then i tried to enter my pendrive which was f drive, like this
c:\> cd f:\ & cd f:
then as mentioned in the solution i entered commands
Volume on file has no label
but it was showing dir's
then i used command
attrib -a -h -r -s *.*
few times it showed error, parameter mismatch/missing
Based on your description, your drive may be attacked by some vicious virus. These viruses always try to hide the files and mark them as system files. Therefore, you could not see them.
So, here are ways for you:
<1>. Show the hidden files or folders as below:
Start => Run => Type in “control folders” and press “OK” =>Click “View” and hook “Show hidden files and folders”=> Press “OK”
<2>. Recover your data at the aid of a third-party recovery tool, if you cannot show out all your files.
I would recommend you to try a hard drive recovery freeware to regain your data. This freeware helped a lot as my flash drive was attacked by some vicious virus last time. It had recovered all of my wanted data back.
<3>. Format your drive to keep it clean and usable.
