at one point i had a virus on a thumbdrive, it would hide all the files in it and say it was un usable data, if you said view hidden files, they would all appear. i had figured out a dll to run in cmd that would unhide the files that where not meant to be hidden such as windows .trashes etc. i had not used it in so long i forgot what it was. i donot want to always rely on a program written by some guy with no name to unhide the things for me with an executable from mediafire that could just as the virus, be insecure.
if anyone knows of a script like what i might have used, id appreciate you sharing it with me.
understandibly you may be curious why. i recently got another virus "smart hdd," it hid all my files and i wanted them back, i had to use 3d party executables to unhide my files, i dont want to be in this position again.
