What Operating System are you running?


im using windows 10 64bit


1. Have you tried opening it from Disk Management?

2. Do I correctly assume that you need to save the files that are stored there?

To show hidden files and folders, open file explorer, click the "view" tab at the top, click the "Options" button in that menu, then click the "View" tab in the new box. From their, select "Show hidden files, folders, and drives" from the list. Then click "OK."

Hope this helps!

First hidding the folder has nothing to do with hard disk no appear in my computer. You said that it is detected but not shown in my computer. Do you check device manager for found new hardware?

Right click on your usb drive f and then property then tool and then check for error.

Better i suggest remove hard disk from usb cashing and then again insert it.
