I downloaded Unhider at Bleeping Computer from the internet. It seemed to work fine for my C drive but I have a partition (called D drive) that still shows it is empty. Is there any way to change the software to look into the D drive instead of the C drive.

Please note, that this program will not unhide removable drives like flash cards and usb drives as the FakeHDD rogues do not target these types of drives.

Please post on the correspomding Operating System forum and ask there how to see that dive.

You could try this,for XP

Press Windows+R key and type

cmd and click ok and run this command

attrib -h D:\*.* /s /d

For vista and windows 7,open command prompt as adminstrator and run the command

Ignore access denied errors,this should unhide your files

Thank you for both replies. I accidentally called the partition D when I looked again it was named E. I tried to use the information that Narenpx mentioned below but nothing seems to work. I also noticed that the free space size of my E partition is the same as the total space size on E. I have a feeling that I deleted my E partition when I had the virus (file recovery). At that time I downloaded and used CCleaner from the internet, but it did not help. Maybe I somehow deleted the E partition by using CCleaner.



Narenpx said to try the following.

Press Windows+R key and type

cmd and click ok and run this command

attrib -h D:\*.* /s /d

I even tried changing the command to

attrib -h D:\*.* /s /e

attrib -h E:\*.* /s /e

attrib -h E:\*.* /s /d




Thank you again for all your help.

I'm not sure what you mean by Deleted E partition.This command will work only if files are hidden

This is command if you have to run it on E drive

attrib -h E:\*.* /s /d
