The filename directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect usb drive

HI, I have actually a solitary folder on a USB vital I can"t access because all the filenames have readjusted to gibberish.  I obtain the error, "The filename, directory name, or volume label syntaxes is incorrect."


I"ve scanned the folder with bitdefender and it came up clean.  I can"t rename anything either.  Even if I offer it a solitary letter name, it offers the error, "The file name you specified is not valid or too long.  Specify a different file name."


I"m running Windows 7 both at occupational and also home, although I do not think that has anything to do with it.  I"ve review that perhaps it became corrupted because of a power outage or pulling the usb without safely removing hardware.  If anyone has any type of principle how I could be able to salvage the information it would be considerably appreciated.  I"m attaching a screenshot of just how the files look now.
