    My pendrive is having 2 Gb data.But when i am opening it
    then it does not show all the files.instead it shows only 400 Mb files.
    When i am scanning with eset,it is showing the files name which are scanned
    How do i retrieve them ?
    is it some kind of virus ?

    Your thread is showing as "solved". Is that actually the case or do you still need assistance?

    Actually when i got this problem,
    i searched but could not found the correct solution so i posted it there
    But after sometime one of my friends told me what was the actual case...

    Actually while scanning dont know how but antivirus changes attributes of the files..

    So just game of 1 command

    attrib filename -r -a -s -h

    and filename can be seen using dir command in command prompt

    Thanks for the concern
