Tool to Recover Moved Files on Mac

“I have lost some files after trying to move them to USB pen drive on my Mac Mini. I dragged all files into pen drive and left the process to complete. The process was really slow and I thought it may be because of few large files that I was moving. But then it suddenly stopped and Mac computer rebooted automatically. Later when I opened the folder that had all these moving files I could only find few. Rest al files were gone. More to this, pen drive had turned unreadable and all the ways are closed now. Can anyone please let me know how to recover moved files on Mac? Please help.
