DO NOT format it right now!!!

Well, it is almost certain your flash disk has suffered some kind of virus or trojans. how about try this:
1. Check whether the files are not in hidden mode.
Click on "Start" -->Run-->type cmd and click on OK.
Here I assume your removable drive as G:
Enter this command: attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.* (replace the letter g with your flash drive letter showed under "My Computer").
Then check if your real files will be showed.
2. If your files won't show. You have to use some strong anti-virus or anti-malware programs (like Malwarebytes Anti-Malware) to eliminate the virus or trojans.

It should help you out. learn more here:
