Change Hidden File to Visible File After Attacking by Virus (Windows Tips)

It is very troublesome when our pendrive or removable storage devices have been attacked by virus after plug-in to a "infected" computer. All files and documents in the removable storage device may seem "disappear" after all the virus has been removed by an anti-virus software. In fact, it is very rarely that "virus" will delete your file. Usually, "virus" will just hide your file or make it "invisible". In other words, the file is become a hidden file.

In order to get rid of this problem, this tutorial will show your how to convert a hidden file to a visible file, again, manually.

1. First of all, remove all the virus in the "infected" removable storage device.

2. Then, open your removable storage device and change the file option in order to see the hidden file.

3. Next, open a command box by follow the steps below:
                         type cmd (then, enter)

4. Finally, type "attrib -R -A -S -H " then "draw and drop" the hidden file to the command box and enter.

The hidden file will immediately become a visible file and continue to apply the same procedure to the rest of the files. (Please put a space between -H and your file.)

The format of this approach is "attrib -R -A -S -H drive:path:filename"

That's all for today. More fascinating articles and sharing will be updated from time to time in Xaivier Blog. So, you are welcome to subscribe our feed, look at our sitemap or simply visit our Homepage.
