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.
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.
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.
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.
