You are not under a deadline, that is a scare tactic.

Once the timer goes down to zero, it is reset. However, the ransom goes up in cost.
There are no additional files encrypted, though.

Since you have no Backups, you can make an attempt to restore files using File Recovery Software such as:

R-Studio > Disk Recovery Software and Hard Drive Recovery tool for Windows, Mac, and Linux

Recuva > Recuva - Undelete, Unerase, File and Disk Recovery - Free Download

PhotoRec > PhotoRec - Digital Picture and File Recovery

Guide to using PhotoRec recovery software.

Also, you can use Shadow Volume Copies:

Unfortunately lots of people are getting hit by this & although I understand the need to pay to get important files back, this can be a bad situation. Not only are people perpetuating this kind of behavior, but there is no guarantee you will receive the decryption key.

Your best option, now & in the future, is to make & maintain, on a regular basis, a system image. Best to keep it on an external drive that is not regularly connected to the PC/Laptop.

I found this article which may help you recover some of the files:

How to Remove Locker Virus and Restore Encrypted Files

However, in the end, it always comes down to one word: Backup. If you have valuable files then don't keep them in one place.
