Does the folder E:\books\pscology\New Folder\New Folder even exist?   It strikes me as very odd to every leave the default folder that gets created when the New->Folder command is used named "New Folder".   Having not one, but two, one embedded under the other, is even more peculiar.

How did batch files hide the files. I think you could run a couple of commands to clear the permissions but I think the safest way would be to boot a live linux disk and copy the files to a USB flash drive. Linux ignores Windows permissions.

 

If booting a linux distro first disable fastboot. In my opinion this should be disabled by default. Disable SecureBoot in your UEFI settings. 

 

Download the Mint Cinnamon iso file. Burn the iso file to DVD on any Windows 7 or later computer by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. You can also create a bootable flash drive using the iso file and Rufus.

Boot the DVD or USB flash drive. Attach the USB flash drive. Open the File Manager. You will see your devices in the left pane. Open your data partition and drill down to your files. Copy and paste the files to your attached USB flash drive which will be shown in devices.
