Windows 7: Files hidden when they are actually on there.

Files hidden when they are actually on there.

I recommend reading this first to get a background story: Flash Drive USB error "Not Accessible" and "Needs to be Formatted"

I got my USB Flash Drive to work, and I can store things on there. Although the files I still had on there are still there, but hidden.

How can I recover these files? I tried Recuva, and other programs but they only find ~233mb out of the 1GB that I have in total on the USB Drive.

Help would be very appreciated.

Sorry for double post, but I am going to mark this as solved. I took it took a technician and they said basically the Flash Drive was waring down, and when I plugged it in the Mac it reset the flash drive and erased everything, and only a few files were left.
Thanks to all that helped!
