    Hi!

    When I select "show hidden item", windows 8.1 "This PC" explorer shows empty removable drives. Is it normal or not?

    Thank you in advance!

    Wouldn't happen to have a card reader would you? If so that is what it is showing and yes it is normal.

    Hello keykavus,

    Yep, it's normal since that check box is for the same Show hidden files, folders, and drives setting in Folder Options.
