When I open my pen drive it shows folder as screensaver with very small space (174kb all with same size) but in reality it is very big in size.

It looks like your pen drive is infected with malware.

This may help:

Or just toss that pen drive in the bin & buy a new one, but don't let anyone borrow it because that's most likely how your existing one got infected.

When you have followed the advice given in #1 run the following three freebies in the order given (they often find what Antivirus programs miss:

AdwCleaner:

Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.com/junkwa...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:

(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.
