I don't know what OS you have but for Windows 7 do the following. 

 

Click Computer. In the menu bar select Organize > Folder and Search Options.  Under the View tab check show Hidden Files,Folders, and Drives. Uncheck Hide Protected Operating System Files. Do you see your files on the the attached USB flash drive?

No problem, the most important thing is your data was only hidden and not lost. Thanks for taking the time to post an update.
