Hey there, tparamas.

Just a tip for future reference - you should never have the only copy of your data on a flash drive and you should always have it backed up somewhere as well.
Is the pen drive detected in Windows Explorer (My Computer)? If "Yes", do you get any errors when you try to open it? Is it recognized in Disk Management or Device Manager?
I'd recommend that you try the flash drive with a different computer/device, to see if the same thing happens. You could also try to access it via Ubuntu Live USB/DVD, to see if it's properly recognized and if you can get to your files. Try out some data recovery options as well.

Hope that helps. Please let me know how everything goes.

Try this 1

Check if the files are not in hidden mode.

Click on "Start" -->Run --> Type cmd and press Enter.

Here I assume your pendrive drive letter as G:

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* --> Press Enter

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your pen drive letter.

Now check your pen drive for the files.

Good Luck
