It's gone forever. You clicked on OK to erase the USB drive and then the software wrote over 3 GB of data to the drive. Unless the drive was over 4 GB in size and your data was written at the very end the Windows install was written over your data.

My USB drive is being filled with the install files now. But, I saw the message and knew what it meant.
