Never trust flash drives as your safe storage medium. Better dvd/cd and a hard drive (external) besides on the host computer.

Always have two separate copies - different media for each.

Recuva “ may help; and then save recovered files to computer; and then to media as above.

Since you copied the files to the flash drive I'm wondering if you still have the originals. If so reformat the flash drive. If it completes with no problems try copying again.

Eve if you manage to reformat this flash drive/usb stick, I wouldn't rely on it for anything serious; unless the content (files etc.) was also on another more reliable storage media as well.

Flash drives are best used for short term porting/carrying/storage of data (securely saved elsewhere at the time); and to transfer as needs-be from one system to another if the two systems are not networked.

"When backing up files, you need to use special USB dongles...."

How does this help??? The link makes that post look like spam. As trvlr mentions, USB Flash is a very risky backup...
