My USB flash drive was empty but the properties show half full. I don't want to format it because I saved my wedding pictures in the pen-drive, and those were gone. Hidden files does nothing. How can I get my picture back?

Sounds like your USB drive has a corrupted filesystem or is damaged, try checking it for errors, and if this doesn't help try PhotoRec.
