✔ Best Answer

Here's what you do for folders with unchangeable hidden attributes: Open a command prompt and browse to the root folder of your removable drive. Then for each folder, type the following: (attrib -s -h <name of folder>) and press enter. What it does is reset the hidden and system attributes of the folder.
