    You might recover many of the files with a recovery tool. The EaseUS tool has been useful for some.

    What did you mean OS boot? Did you mean, whenever you insert this USB drive, the system boots directly from it? Is there a manual/ user guide for this device? Please provide more details.

    Connect the external drive to the system & check if it shows up in Windows Disk Management window. Now open Command Prompt with admin rights. Next type the command: chkdsk X: /f (where x is the external drive letter/ whatever it shows) then press Enter key.

    After completion, type exit & press Enter key. Now, you can check if you are able to see the full capacity of the external hard drive.

    Installed itself?  That usually does not happen. I'm thinking it may have been put there depending on how you set the drive up to be a recovery drive if your HD fails. This would allow you to boot from the external drive. Not knowing for sure what you loaded to the drive or an app you may have installed put on the drive I would try the tool Raven recommended.
