Maybe your files got hidden,
go to "folder options" from any folder by pressing alt + t + o or alt then going to tools -> options. Then click on the second tab "view" and under "hidden files and folders" in advanced settings, select "show hidden files, folders, and drives" and click ok.

If your files appear select them and go to properties and unselect "Hidden".

Another way.
Start and type in folders. Then tick on Show Hidden Files and folders.

thanks for help . i searched internet further and found one of the easiest way to fix that(for sure my problem was'nt for hidden files or such a things).just open cmd then change current directory to my usb then write this particular sentence that i could'nt understand " ATTRIB -S -H *.* /S /D" . it really works .
