Accidental System Restore no BackUp

I managed to system restore without a backup, i need someone’s help to see if there is anything i can do. All work for my University Dissertation, i am slowly freaking out please help

I only have 2 Gen 1 models so I am responding based on this model.

Your files should be accessible if you only done a “System Only Restore”.

Visit How to restore a My Cloud (single bay) device to factory default settings which explains what each restore function does. Hopefully you didn’t do a “Full Restore”

No unfortunately it wasn’t a quick one which is where the problem is could do it easily if that was the case.
