The simple answer is "usually" to copy any files that you need from the USB into a folder on your desktop then format the USB.

All those don't look very healthy. I would also vote for a reformat.

Only you can tell. If the folders don't open, then they are corrupt.

I'll suggest to try first with this litlle tool: Download Unlocker 1.9.2 - FileHippo.com

If it don't help, format it with HP Format Tool: Download HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool 2.2.3 - FileHippo.com
