[Solved] Data in my Pen Drive exists but does not show up in My Computer

Hello Friends, Last night i ran in to a Problem where my 32 GB pen drive which was almost full with very important data was not showing up in my computer.
Irony of the situation was it was showing up in my TV. I could play all the videos and Images but when i connect it to my computer it showed nothing.
Was worried as i didn't had backup of it,

After searching a lot on net i found out a command to run which fixed it like a charm.


1) Go to RUN
2) Type CMD
3) Enter the following command and press ENTER

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

Where g which is highlighted in Yellow is my drive letter.
Go to my computer and see the drive letter of your pen drive or drive which is not showing up files.

It took 30 seconds and it started showing me all the files and folders.

Hope it helps you and others.
So please keep sharing,
