Problem with virus hidden all my files on external hd tried everything

Cannot see my files on my external hdd, i think because of a virus.
I tried everything i know.
Malwarebytes
Superantispyware
Avg anti virus
Spybot
Cmd attrib ...
REgistry changes
Folder options
ccleaner
auto run exterminator.


I know the files are there because it shows my external drives half full like it before and now they are just hidden.

A little more information please.

* Fill in your System Spec's
* Is the Ext. Hdd USB, E-SATA, or Firewire?
* Have you been using the Hdd regularly for back ups, or is this the first time?
* How many INTERNAL Hdd's do you have?

Take a look in Device Manager; is the Hdd recognised? Then 'Computer' - 'Manage' - 'Disk management' - 'Storage' -
- Is the Ext Hdd shown by its Drive Letter? Is it shown as OK?
