Hi, welcome to SevenForums!

Read-only File and Folder Attribute

Open windows explorer
Click Organize > Folder and search options
Go to the View tab on the top
Under 'Hidden files and folders' click 'Show hidden files...'
Now click ok

If your files are still hidden you can go back to the same View tab and uncheck Hide protected operating system files

Please reply if you have managed to view your files.
