First of all, you shouldn't delete files you want.

Second of all, the problem with it not being detected / appearing unformatted may be due to not unmounting properly. You may be able to restore the file system by running the command

fsck.msdos -a /dev/sdx

substituting the correct device name for the Flash drive. You can determine the correct name by running the dmesg command after plugging it in. For instance, if you see "sd 6:0:0:0: [sdb] 3959729 512-byte logical blocks: (2.02 GB/1.88 GiB)", then you know the device is /dev/sdb

Lastly, I don't know of any tools that can recover deleted files from a Flash drive for Linux, but there are several for Windows.

Might try photorec or testdisk.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
