how do I open this dat file

Specs: Windows XP PRO, AMD Turion 64x2/2GB
I tried to copy all my files to a flash drive before formatting my hard drive. I copied stuff that I didnt know wouldnt work like my program files. I also copied my docs with pics and everything. It was OK when I checked it after copying. It had all kinds of file types on it as you can imagine. Word, excel, jpg, pdf, you name it. Then, after reformatting and inserting into the usb drive, low and behold it had converted itself into a dat file. I tried it on other computers and it was the same. I have tried to open it with everything under the sun. Word pad opens it but everything looks like computer code language. It starts out with 4MSU. Thats just about the only clue i have that might tell me what program created it. It has my resume and important pictures. I really need to get it open. HELP !!!!!!!!

If you did not just drag and drop them there then I am thinking you have not yet reinstalled the program used to copy them.
