Last night my flash drive is working fine. This morning, it doesn't show up as drive E, even though it's been plugged in all night. It doesn't show up at all, even in the Disk Management screen. Is there any way to salvage the data on it? I have a lot of importanat stuff saved.

Other than trying another PC there's not much you can do if the drive is dead. Try something like TestDisk, Recuva or GetDataBack to see if they are able to access the drive.

In the future backup all important documents/files.
