Well, like the others and I have said, the flash drive is probably toast in that case.

If it was only 4 months old, you can probably get it replaced under warranty (check to see how long the warranty on it is).

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post

I think that you should attempt to format the drive outside of windows.
Like with a *nix boot disk or from a dos mode. If that doesn't work then rma the drive

Has anyone else had access to this drive apart from you in the 4 months you have had it?

Also when you said you were copying files a lot how big were those files?

If you liked what I say or just want to share the love click the scales on the bottom left of my post. :)
