Unfortunately there is no way to recover/restore deleted shadow copies. You can try cleaning the infection by scanning the system with the following tools ( one after another ).

We created a tool. It does not decrypt your files but can alert you minutes after a cryptovirus attacks. It scans MS Office files, photos, text files etc. to see if they are encrypted and outputs results to .csv file and sends an email with this .csv attachment to alert you. These days v2.0.0 is ready to be released. Encryption Scanner
