Hi Lassily,

To view your hidden files, just click on start, then from the list of programs choose control panel. Look for appearance and settings and click on it. Thereafter click on view, then view hidden folders.

To recover your lost files, I will suggest a software called recovermyfiles. Go to Google, search for it and download it, and then install it on your computer. Execute it and choose the partition of the drive that has the files that are now lost, and choose the option to recover them.

When the process is done, save the files to a folder you will specify.

Hope this helps.

Hello Lassily,

Well there are various ways to see hidden files in Windows 7. The easiest way is through the Folder options. Just Go to the Folder Option and then Click on View and then you'll get various options ; in that select, Show all the hidden folders, files and drives and click on Apply.  Now  you'll see all the hidden folders and files transparent, indicating that they are hidden.

Also if you want to recover deleted or lost data, you can do that by restoring your operating system, to the specific date and time when the data was available in the system or else if you have a backup of data, then you can probably restore files from backup as well.

Hope it helps.

Goodluck!!

Wait for the new windows to appear; select the View tab and under the hidden files and folder select the radio button;  now choose the, show hidden files and folders option.

To remove the checkmark from the folders, just click on the check mark.  Try to label all hidden file extensions to know the types of files and try to remove the checkbox.  Label hide protected operating system files. Simply press the apply button and try to click the ok button.
