How can I retrieve files if they've disappeared after a BSOD?

a BSOD doesn't delete any system files, unless they get corrupted from multiple crashes or unexpected reboots

Had an important .DWG File on my flash drive, saved it last might, got up this morning, did some cleaning with Malwarebytes found 7 adware and a trojan, got rid of all of it. Then proceeded to get my video card stable, BSOD several times, finally got it somewhat stable, proceeded to start working and its gone from the flash drive. Launched REcuva didn't find anything anywhere.

This could be either a HDD failing ,either some virus attack.
If it is a virus it may be a rootkit.
I recommend you Kaspersky ,BitDefender ,Avira ,Dr Web Cure IT and Avast because Malwarebytes doesn t catch all of them.Install them one after the other not in same time.
If one of this finds a rootkit like alureon or something i advice you to do a low level format of the HDD with the manufacturer tool.
Do not use "free" Windows OS-s as many of them use a bootkit to pass Windows activation and some of this bootkits can be used to control your system.
A failing motherboard can generate random BSOD-s as well.
