If your files are truly hidden on your USB drive, you will be able to use the instructions in the VisiHow article below to find your files. However, before you start to use any of these instructions, you will want to locate your USB drive's letter by doing the following:

  • Open a Windows Explorer window.
  • Look at the left sidebar.
  • Locate your USB drive.
  • Note the letter.

Once you have noted the letter, follow the instructions in the VisiHow article below, replacing "F:" if need be with the letter of your drive.

If, after following the instructions below, you are still unable to find your USB drive's files, they may have been accidentally deleted. Alternatively, your USB drive may be malfunctioning which is causing your computer to be unable to read your files. Contact the manufacturer of your USB drive to further troubleshoot your issues with a customer service representative. You may have to get the USB drive fixed or replaced if the issues are hardware-based. If that's the case, you will likely lose your files.
