Hello and good morning to you all. I have a slight problem please. I have a 32gb usb flash drives which has been working flawlessly for the last few months....with my windows 7 laptop.and when I go to my computer it says 12.1GB free of 29.7GB,..then when i click on the drive it says this folder is empty!!! any suggestions please. I have kaspersky internet security 2012, and i did use this to scan it, but nothing came up.

But on thursday evening a friend inserted their usb flash drive into my laptop,..and kaspersky did detect a few viruses and neutralized them.

I just need to be able to access my flash drive again, asap. thanks

Will it read in another machine?

Possibly this, Turn on "Show hidden files and folders." I think you will find your items are all there, just hidden

From another PC, copy the flash drive's files onto that machine. When confident the transfer is legit, copy the files back into the re-formatted flash drive. If the files are sensitive, ensure the transfer is legit and complete from your own PC, then remove from the other PC.
