Solved How to unhide MANY / ALL FOLDERS using attrib

April 18, 2011 at 03:29:47
Specs: Windows XP
I have many pen drives all affected by some virus that hides all files.

I have to use
attrib -h -s "filename"
command to unhide files in my pen drive on windows XP.

However There are thousands of folders which are hidden and going through this process is a nightmare.

Is there any command that can unhide ALL FOLDERS at once??

ps: trying to unhide using windows GUI (right click pen drive>properties) doesnt work as Hidden attribute is greyed out.

Please help...

1)
First of all Talkin about the Hidden Commands that you mentioned

attrib -r -s -h "Filename"


r : Read only

s: System File

h: Hidden

The above Commands can be used as

attrib -r -s -h *.*

it will unhide all the Extensions [file format] present in

2)
If you Still Not Able to see the Folders Have a copy of WinRar . Browse to the Very

Drive letter . Now You can easily See those Folder names .

Well this Works !! Yup :)

If You Dont Want To Change The attributes of Individual Folder , You have the

priveleges in Winrar TO Copy the Stuffs .

Copy And Save it Apart :)

... open any windows folder with explorer

... click tools (tab) then "folder options" then "view" (tab)

... Check "show hidden files and folders" ... Apply

... now you see them!
