62 How to Restore Files Hidden by Virus on Windows 7

Trick and Tip To Recover Missing or removed file by Virus also Method to retrieve File or folder in Pendrive, Laptop.Some virus do hide file and folder in flashdisk that connected to a computer or laptop infected by virus. And then we tried to scan the flashdisk using antivirus program. We are very happy because antivirus can detect and remove virus in the flashdisk, but it doesn’t return our files and folder hidden by the virus. I hope the virus did not delete the files, just make it hidden. If your files was deleted by virus, we need a tool to restore files. If the files was hidden, we need to restore our files manually using command prompt. This tutorial is for Windows 7 user.
Virus has modified the attribut of folders and files to be hidden. So, we will try to modify the folders and files attribut to restore.
Open command prompt from START MENU > RUN. Type CMD and hit enter. Go to the drive, for example your flashdisk is on drive E.
Type “e:” and enter.
The command we use to restore files is ATTRIB.
Type this command :
attrib -s -h *.* /S /D and hit enter.
Finished.
If you want the easier way to restore your files, you could use Smadav Antivirus. It can detect hidden files in your flashdisk and restore them.

File Hidden by Virus (Pendrive)
I believe all of us must be frustrated with the virus, worm, trojan and malware because sometimes so hard to remove and they will cause you a lot of trouble. not only you but also your friend(if they borrow your pendrive or hard drive filled with those culprit(virus.win32.vb.dg).
Our case here today is “How to make your hidden file emerge from the depth of invisibility?”. Because, even though you go to Folder Option > View > Show hidden File, you still can’t see the folder inside your hard drive.
Now, lets get started.
First we use the manual method.(I prefer this method because, you can learn something instead of using software + few clicks and you end up with nothing) What i mean is, isn’t it great to learn how to use command prompt?
Step 1:
Run “cmd” (alternative way to open =  Windows Button + r, type “cmd” and enter)
>>> For windows XP User, Click Start > All Program > Accesories > CMD/Command Prompt. Then follow steps 2.
Step 2:
Type “attribf:*.*/d/s-h-r-s”
Note that the “f” is your drive letter. You can change it to C: , D: , depending on which drives infected by the virus.
 Step 3:
After you type the command, press enter. The times for this process to complete depending how big your storage and how much data inside. The larger occupied data on our drive, the longer the process will be.

 If you curious about the command above, you can type “help attrib” and press enter. There you can see what’s the meaning behind the -s -h /d etc.
Hope this helps!!!

  32. attrib -s -h /s /d *.* command makes all the folders including system related folders to appear. which is bit messy, by using dir/ah command we can easily identify the Virus effected directories easily.

    This command helps to unhide the hidden folder which are greatly effected by virus in Flash Drives .
