Do not put valuable data on a pen drive. They are not reliable enough for that.
They are only suitable for short term storage or for transferring small files between computers.

Valuable data should be backed up on optical discs or additional hard drives so that you have at least two copies of every valuable file.

Most if not all flash drives originally use FAT32 software partitioning / formatting, not NTFS. That has nothing to do with your problem.

If the flash drive is plugged into a USB port it can actually work with properly, you probably damaged data on the drive yourself by NOT using Safely Remove Hardware to STOP accessing it when you unplugged it while Windows was running. In most cases you can use certain programs to repair the data damage and have access to your data again.

Troubleshooting USB device problems including for flash drives, external drives, memory cards.

Look for the pen drive in Windows Disk Management. If the drive shows up there then highlight the listing and then post all the listed information here. You may need to repair the partition if it is listed as RAW. Use testdisk to perform the repair. Be sure to read all the tutorials before using.
