    The normal procedure would be to format the drive and then restore your data from the backup you made previously. All files of any importance need at least one backup copy while those of particular importance require 2 or more backup copies. Making major changes to the drive, such as encrypting it, makes this doubly important. Data can be lost for a wide variety of causes and you need to be prepared when, not if, something happens. Data recovery after the fact is always hit or miss.

    Sorry, I can't help with data recovery.
