Invisible files - can't get access

I have G disk with no files visible on it, but when I check it with any antivirus I do see my photos and documents I've missed.

How could such problem be solved?

I would use a live linux cd and mount the drive and view it, I can't be 100 % sure, but I have a feeling your stuff would show up. Perhaps I can point you in the right direction as I don't know your linux skill set I will suggest Kubuntu | Friendly Computing if you have any questions about how to mount a hard drive, feel free to ask, if I am still not sleeping I will surely answer them. Also, you will need to gran an .iso image from that site, and burn it using something like cdburnerxp (pick the version without opencandy)
