You should create a backup system image before you start (in case of disaster).

As long as you don`t delete anything, you won`t loose any data.

Just follow the tutorial.

"It's better to have a backup and not need it, than to need a backup and not have it."

Thank you guys for your suggestions. I found a solution for this. I used EASEUS data recovery tool to retrieve my hidden data. By running this software I have retrieved my data back. Now I wil back up my data for sure
