Windows 7: Directories AutoHide and Autoprotected themselves! Need help

Directories AutoHide and Autoprotected themselves! Need help

Hi guys, this has been an issue since some time.

You see, I have a 1.5 TB My Book from WD External Hard Drive, and there I have some videos and programs, but since some months ago, the directory which I have them, protected themselves.
I mean, they made themselves as if they were system protected:
(They are only visible when I untick the View System Protected Files), which I canīt access otherwise I type the directory on the address bar.

Is there a way to fix this? I know that a good tip is to move the content out of it and transfer it to another folder... But it will take long... Also, any ideas why that happened?

Thanks for the big help!
