Not using cleanmaster to delete your backups was a lesson you learned the hard way, but it is not unrecoverable and you can chalk it up as a learning experience.

Let us know how it worked out, everything will be fine as long as you take your time and relax. This is something that happens to most people sooner or later and is a great confidence builder (once you work through it).
