Are you using a laptop? Have you checked the recovery menu on startup? It should be accessible when pressing some button combination on startup. Check the laptop’s manual for more details.
Unfortunately, if you have lost some important files, you should try recovering them with data recovery software. I leave you some suggestions in the link below. If you need a recovery drive, you should seek assistance from the store you got the PC from.
