Discover hidden files in your USB or external hard drive with this cool anti-cloaking software

By Kyle Daniels

Have you ever noticed that Trojans, viruses and other malicious software, when you detect them using security applications such as Avira Antivirus and Malwarebytes, appear as hidden files? Additionally, these hidden files take up a significant amount of drive space. Which probably explains why, before you made the discovery, those Word or text files in your flash drive were suspiciously hogging up valuable drive space. No thanks to those hidden files.

Now, this may seem like a clever way for malicious software to sneak into your system, but all this changed when I started using USB Show. This nifty but amazing little program can scan and detect hidden files in virtually any external hard drive device, whether it's as small as a 2 GB flash disk, or a heavyweight 2TB portable hard drive. Now that’s really useful. Once detected, USB Show displays the file, allowing you to decide if you want to keep the file or remove it from the drive.

Now you don’t need to wonder if your drive contains files that you can’t see, files which may pose as a potential threat to your system. Have total peace of mind with USB Show.


  • Scanning and detection capabilities allows you to view hidden files
  • Software provides support for virtually any external hard drive
  • Software frees up valuable disk space


  • English version can be a bit challenging

USB Show is a free tool that allows users to recover files hidden by someone or by a virus or malware. USB Show can find any file on a USB stick, flash drive or internal hard disk. This application is portable and users usually highlight this feature for the comfort of running it wherever you want. When you download it, you will notice that it has a very small size, it’s really useful and besides, it can operate in any computer without any kind of previous installation.

This application is quite easy to use, and generally, it works really powerfully. Its efficiency stands out for recognizing a great amount of hidden documents by different viruses in the same USB. In fact, you can also run it in hard disks, but be conscious that this process takes much more time.

It uses a ‘one-click’ process to recover, which consists in having just one button to scan. Its interface looks clear and really intuitive even if you’re a beginner. Besides, you have the option of choosing the documents or folder that you want to analyze. In general terms, this tool is really complete, useful and easy to use, but it takes too much time in doing the scans.

How to use this program

It is recommended to be sure that the system that you will analyze is not infected by malware before you recover your files it. For finding hidden folders and documents with this tool, you have to select the directory in the USB memory. Once it starts scanning, the time it takes is variable and may change depending on the size of the content to be evaluated. When the analysis is finished, all the hidden files will be visible and then, you can transfer or back up them.

When the recovered content is ready, you have to make a copy of it in other USB memory or stick. Afterwards, you have to format the analyzed memory because it can have any malware or virus inside, so you have to use the application carefully. If you see any folder with the name RECYCLER just delete it because this folder can activate a virus that can infect your computer.
