Suppose your Windows 10 have any backup programs, they will automatically back up your data, or you can check Windows Backup and Restore options. Connect an external hard drive, and put your backups in. Type Control Panel in the search box. After opening the Control Panel, click 'Backup and Restore'. Choose a safe location to restore data, and decide which backup you want to recover.

If this doesn't work, to recover data from formatted partitions, especially for essential data, it is recommended to use a professional data recovery tool EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard.
