When you format the USB Kingston memory stick you will lose the data stored on this USB memory stick.
Files on a flash drive can be corrupted if it is not removed from the USB port properly.
Before removing the flash drive click on the Safely Remove Hardware icon and then click on the flash drive you want to remove and then remove the flash drive when the computer message says it is Safe to remove.
To restore the flash drive you need to format the flash drive, but you will lose the data stored on the flash drive.
If you need the data on the flash drive these WEB sites may help: -

Some USB deviceswill not function properly after a "computer format." Transcend flash drives, for example, have a downloadable formatting program from the manufacturer's website to properly reconfigure the drive.

I don't know the specific model, but perhaps http://www.kingston.com/support/USBFLASHDRIVES/default.asp would be of assistance.
