  • Try using a command prompt. To see help type the command followed by /?
     
    In explorer hold down shift and right click the folder containing the files.
    Choose Copy As Path (this and Open Command Prompt here only show if you hold
    down shift). This copies the folder name to the clipboard.
     
    Click Start - All Programs - Accessories - Right click
    Command Prompt and choose Run As Administrator. Type
     
    cd then a space. Right click and choose paste. This sets the folder. Type cd
    /? for help.
     
    Type (and type dir/? for help)
     
    dir *.*
     
    Your files should appear. To see files in sub folders type
    dir *.* /s
     
    To page through the list type (note it's the pipe character from Shift + \
    followed by more not an L(l) or 1)
    dir *.* /s |more
     
    In case the files are hidden type this to list all files including hidden
    files
    dir *.* /s /a |more
     
    Do any of these show your files.
    If you get an error message you can copy it by right clicking the window,
    choosing Mark, selecting the text, and press enter.
