Deleted my cloud library now my local presets are gone

Hello Adobe support and community,


I hope anyone can help me out. I've deleted my cloud library yesterday (using https://lightroom.adobe.com/libraries) to clean up my cloud storage. My locally installed Lightroom for Windows was not synced to the cloud, ever. There wasn't even the same images in browser and on my PC so I've thought it's okay to clean my cloud storage. So I went to the menu on the top right corner, deleted my cloud cataloge as I thought and confimed my deletion by typing a sentence of confirmation.


Today starting up Lightroom on my PC I notice that everything is gone. All of my own presets, cataloges and images are gone. I do have backups of my PC, but there are no *.lrcat files to be found, no *.lrtemplates in any of the appdata folders. While I do have a backup of all my purchased backups, I don't have a current backup of my own presets.


Can anyone of the support team help me out, is there any way to recover?
