So I have this folder with date as name and . in between, 1.1.2018 containing a txt file and had it in a USB, afterwards the folder became a file with extension .2018,

how can I revert it back to a folder? the size seems right and notepad doesn't show anything.

  • Are you saying that your folder turning into a file? If that is the case the file is gone, that shouldn't happen, sounds like an issue with the file system on the drive itself. – Ramhound Jan 11 at 16:57
  • The best You could do is to try using recovery software. – Pancakedinner Jan 11 at 17:20
