USB Hidden Folder Fix 1.1

Easy-to-configure and portable piece of software whose purpose is to help you view the hidden folders and their attributes from your USB drive
USB Hidden Folder Fix is a compact utility that is designed to display the hidden folders from your USB drive. It is a handy application when your removable drive was infected by a virus that creates hidden folders that contain malicious code.

When the infected folders have the attribute "system" it is more difficult to display them in order to view the contained files.

You can change the settings of the Windows Explorer in order to view the files but this change will also reveal important system files from all disk drives. It makes it easier to accidentally change or delete an important folder.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to view concealed folders on USB drives on the breeze.

Simple looks

The interface of the program is easy to use and guides you through the required steps in order to unhide the folders. The program displays the number of processed files during the operation.

Check out all folders found on the target drive and their attributes

This tool displays all the folders from the selected drive and the attributes assigned to each folder. It allows you to assess the storage device and decide if you need to unhide the folders in order to make changes.

If you choose to unhide the folders, the program resets the attributes of the folders by removing the "hidden," "system," "archive" and "read-only" attribute. Unfortunately you cannot apply the change only to a certain folder as the program reveals all the folders and the files from the drive.

Bottom line

Overall, the USB Hidden Folder Fix application provides you with an easy solution for removing the attributes from the folders and files of a removable device. Without this protection any file and folder can be deleted, even important system components.
