My USB drive initially worked fine (I can access the files and all) but then there was a pop-up saying the drive needs to be repaired. At first I ignored it as I needed to save some files, and there was no obvious problems. I disconnected and reconnected the USB drive and it was acting normally, but the pop-up came again - this time I agreed to have it scan and repair (I'm using Windows 8). However, when I tried that, it failed, and from that point on, I couldn't access the files within the USB. Heck, its name doesn't show up and 'Removable Disk' takes its place. If I try to access this'removable disk' I get the following error message:

Please Insert a Disk into Removable Disk [drive letter]

and the properties show that there is no memory used nor is there any available. Can someone, please, please tell me how I can recover all my files from it. I'm begging you, there is so much work on there I do not want to lose - ranging from word documents to .psd and .ai files for adobe photoshop and illustrator. I'm in full panic mode. Any help will be dearly appreciated

Additionally, I've changed the USB pathway, it was originally drive G:, then I switched it to X:, then W:, then back to G:

Still nothing.
