Windows 7: Folder options

Folder options

I have a windows 8.1 laptop

i had stored some movies in my external hard disk, but after a few days when I plugged in my hard drive those movies won't show up. I saw few blogs and followed the folder options method and then saw that my files are hidden. I didn't choose the option of hiding them when i was storing movies in it and suddenly these files are hidden and will only appear if i check the option of "view hidden files".

Can someone please explain why does this happen, and are these files a potential threat to my laptop's security ?

Is there any way we can unhide those files so that they appear as normal files?

Thanks in advance

Is there an easy way to access folder options in Windows 7 , the only way I seem to be able to do this is by doing typing folder options in the search field - previously ( Vista and XP) , was just one click.
