I did not copy the files to the PC and formatted the flash drive. Do I have a chance to recover deleted files on a flash drive? I read that there is special software, but I do not know how it works with such media.

There is... sort of. There is recovery software out there (not going to name any, because I have forgotten ones I've used in the past - but googling should find you some). Just make sure you don't put anything back on there, you'll end up overwriting the data. Formatting a flash drive may make data recovery trickier, but perhaps worth a try.

If you don't know what you're doing, take it to a computer shop.

I take no responsibility in any loss of data.
