    Hi lucky,

    You have formatted your pen drive so only option left is to recover them by using recovery software. Now stop using your pen drive to avoid overwriting of data and try using USB data recovery software which will recover all your files.

    You can download trial version of the software and recover your files.

    All that was on the Pen Drive would have been removed once you clicked Format.
    Unlikely that you will be able to recover them.

    Go back to your friend and ask for them again and perhaps get them on a CDRW as well, just in case you come across the same problem.
