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

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.
