Depending on what you used to recover it may already be too late

USB Devices like Thumb Drives are not overly reliable and do fail far more often than people give them credit for. They are also subject to Mechanical Damage if not correctly looked after.

So if this USB is actually still functional and all that has happened here is that it has constantly been removed without using the Safely Remove Option in Windows the Partition Information could have been destroyed. You can use software to rebuild the Partition Information products like On Track Data Adviser may be of use to you there is a Trial Version available here

Seagate also has a File Recovery Utility which is available here as well with a Trial Version

http://services.seagate.com/promotion1.aspx

You can try one or both of these trials to see what is visible on the Thumb Drive and then if it is actually working you can purchase either one to recover your files.

But you need to understand that it is highly likely that the device is no longer actually working and any possibility of a successful Data Recovery is very low.
