Hey guys, I used TWRP to back up files, then by mistake I used format data instead of advanced wipe!
So I lost everything on my mobile with the back up files!
Now I googled file extension for TWRP back up, it was .WIN
Quote:

Even though all TWRP backup files carry the extension .win, they are either tar archives or filesystem images. System, data, cache and .android_secure are backed up as tar archives or gnu-zipped tar archives if compression is enabled. You can rename those .win files to .tar (.tar.gz if compressed) and extract them like a regular archive. Boot and recovery partitions are backed up as .img files using dd.

HTML Code:

So is there any program that I can use to restore the back up files? (.win files) If not, How can I restore at-least the pictures, videos, messages, contacts.. etc?
If someone there can help me, please do! any little info can be useful!
Thank you.
