How can I show hidden data on a USB drive?

There is a strange malware/virus at the PCs at my university library, which cause the data on a USB drive to vanish apparently. Whenever I plug a USB in those PCs and then open it at my home, even after scanning and removing viruses with updated NOD32 in my PC, all pre-existing data in the USB is invisible.

When I check the space occupied by data, it is still as much as it was before, which means the data is still there. Note that I know the option to show hidden files and folders, but this data is still invisible and I am very frustrated because this happens every time.

    FRIENDS ITS 1000000000000000% great software do use it

    Hi

    USB Show ;
    It is a free little portable tool that shows all hidden files inside the USB Drive. Insert your USB Drive, launch USB Show executable file and hit Recovery The Hide File button to recover all hidden files. The developer’s language is Espanol, therefore the app starts in Espanol language by default. Change language to English,

    EASY WAY, NO SOFTWARE NEEDED!!! IM SERIOUS PEOPLE!
    Just press Tools button on window links, press folder options, then a new window will pop up, click view tab... and in the list, there should be a sub folder option, which lets you choose to show hidden files, press apply then ok.
    all files will show, hidden also but faded, right click select them all and click properties, then make sure there is nothing in the hidden check box!
    duuuude sweeet! job done and bob is still your uncle!!! xx

    or
    1) go to Run -> type regedit
    2) now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE
    MICROSOFTWINDOWS
    CURRENTVERSIONExplorer
    AdvancedFolderHidden
    2) now you can see 2 keys NOHIDDEN and SHOWALL here
    3) Set the CheckedValue of NOHIDDEN to 0 and CheckedValue of SHOWALL to 1
    4) now try to select show hidden files and folders. This should show your hidden files and folders.

    or
    gp to run then type cmd then the following
    X:>attrib -a -h -s * /s /d
    X is your usb drive letter so choose it as is on your pc
