Are you certain this was the result of malware? This sounds more like a file system corruption issue, non-malware related.

You might want to try running a data recovery program against the USB flash drive and see what it reports.

I've found several reports of it, for instance, in the Czech malware forum www.viry.cz. Unfortunately, even the experts there could not come up with a solution and the user had to reinstall the OS and format the USB flash. I'm willing to connect to the computer remotely and check it out myself.
