A Guy, first of all i would like to thank you for the concern and quick response.. i really appreciate it very much. The procedure that you showed was the same procedure i did on my first attempt but nothing happens..
now im lost in the middle of nowhere *sigh*
This is what i did exactly (external drive G 1.
from CMD i typed g:\ attrib -r -a -s -h g:*.* /s /d /l
then i pressed enter key to view all my hidden and missing folders/files. 2.
I exit from CMD and went back to windows mode. 3.
When I check my external hardrive, the all the hidden folders/files appeared and so as the shortcut/link folder & files , i deleted all the shortcut and link folders & files since they said it is a virus. 4.
So now I got all the folders and files that i wanted. I ran my antispyware/antivirus/antimalwares then... 5.
these strange folders like $AVG, Autorun, Recycler, $Recycle.bin, System Volume Information, etc. etc. etc.....
stayed unhidden 6.
I tried to set the folder option to its default settings like the above illustration that you sent but still.. i can see those files which are supposed to be hidden, and now i am confused which from those files should be kept hidden and which shouldn't.
Is there any button or command that automatically set those different files to their default mode (hide or unhide) in just one click? without selecting one by one for their options? need more help please.. thank you!
