You try searching for them again and again but you are unable to find them. Well, no need to panic yet. The virus might have just changed the attributes to hidden. In most of the cases they would generally hide the files you stored in a flash drive or an external hard drive. The infected files remain hidden even after you have cleaned your computer using a antivirus software. So how do you recover files hidden by a computer virus? Well its pretty simple.
