There are many causes that you might not be able to see your files from your pendrive.

First of all, make sure that files are not being hidden. Hidden files won’t show generally. To see hidden files, go to Windows Explorer >> press “Alt” >> from the new ribbon, select “Tools” >> Folder Options >> open “View” tab >> scroll down and select “Show hidden files, folders, and drives” >> press “Apply” >> OK. Now, go to your pendrive and see if they are available.

If you didn’t give format to your pendrive, you can recover the files using any data recovery software, like MiniTool Power Data Recovery. Its trial edition will allow you recover 1GB file from anywhere of your PC. Scan your pendrive with the software and recover the files as necessary.

Make sure to run a checkup for your pendrive for not happening such problem in future.

1. Start an elevated Command Prompt.

2. Run the following command:
chkdsk /r x:
Where ‘X’ indicates the drive letter of your pendrive.

Hope your files’ good luck.
