    Maybe the flash drive is damaged and or has errors, have you run any tests on the usb stick?

    or and re-format to NTFS in Windows and see if that solve the problem.

    It sucks when these kind of things happen, always make proper backups of important things even extras.
    These issues is bound to happen with USB flash drives sooner or later and if you only have one backup, then you're basically screwed hard.

    If the drive is Chinese - these are always get corrupted.
    You can try searching Google: "VID xxxx PID yyyy"
    You can get your drive's VID/PID from devmgmt.msc in Properties of the flash drive. Maybe you'll find a formatting tool, that will help you to restore original chip information, so it won't corrupt (however the capacity might decrease).
