Lost ANKI after formatting the system

After formatting my system (it wasnt me who did it), with specific instructions to save my collection, the person simply didnt and also erased anki. Is there ANY chance to recover it? (no, i did not sync)

If you did not sync or back up your collection somewhere, I’m afraid it sounds like you’re out of luck. :frowning:

i asked a technician to help and he said he could recover the file, but it was corrupt…
