I have a problem with my flash drive which I cannot find the files I have saved?

Hello sir, I have a problem with my flash drive, I have downloaded ppt files in my flash drive in internet cafe and it was OK or has been saved completely, then I was so shocked when I inserted the flash drive in my laptop and was going to open the file but I can't find the files I have saved a while ago, I tried to open it in different laptop and desktop but it seems like I can't find it anymore. The worst thing is that I accidentally deleted the files in my Google account where the ppt file comes. that is why I can't download it again. I hope you can help me with my problem sir, a big advance THANKS.

Antiviruses will not erase files that will not have been detected as threats. If you wish, at your own risk, to obtain those files, then you will have to open your antivirus and check its quarantine section. From the quarantine, you can restore your files back to the flash drive.

For example, if you are using Kaspersky Antivirus, you can follow our tutorial on how to restore threats placed into the quarantine section. This tutorial will be useful even if you use another antivirus, as almost all of them have the same section.

P.S. The "f" command in Command Prompt should actually be your Flash drive letter followed by a colon. For example:

f:

or

g:

However, you do not need it for this instance.

I have been copying files to my flash from one computer, and every time I plug it into my laptop, Windows Defender says there is malware in it. If I scan it, everything gets deleted. If I don't the files can be seen by viewing hidden items, but I cannot unhide them?
