Hi Everyone

I am super new to Linux having only used it for very small projects because of its low system requirements. I used a windows program to hide directories on an external 2TB USB drive. However the laptop that had the program that did this for me failed. I did try again once I had gotten a new laptop, but unfortunately I had no joy. I know that linux distros are sometimes used for system maintenance on windows machines so I was hoping that there may be something in Linux that would help me to find this hidden data? Its nothing major, mainly adult swim animation that I thought my daughter was a little young for at the time, but I wouldn't want to re-download everything again knowing that the information is still on the drive and is also still taking up space!!

Any advice that could be given would be much appreciated, and if you require any clarification please don't hesitate to ask.

Thanks

Do you remember the name of the program that you used to hide the directories? Are they just hidden or did you use some sort of encryption program. The easiest would be to install the program in the new computer and then unhide the directory.
