✔ Best Answer
Another way is to run Unhide & then MalwareBytes.

Download & run Unhide
To run Unhide, simply download it to your desktop and then double-click on the Unhide icon. The program will open a black box and start making the files on your fixed disks visible again. Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives. Once it has finished, the program will display a Windows alert stating that your files have been restored. You should then reboot your computer for all of the settings to go into effect.
Copy & Paste the contents of the log. Let me know if it doesn't produce a log please.

Also post the MalwareBytes log.
