    First I've decided to update my OS from 8 to 10. While in the process there's an error message (screenshot above) that I need to convert my disk into GPT. So I search in Google on how to convert my disk and I found out that I need to open a command prompt "diskpart" then I see only a 1 disk so I selected that disk and then clean. After that the conversion the installation of new OS was done! I'm so happy that time when I see the windows 10 interface but when I checked my drive (Drive C and D before) it become LOCAL Drive C ONLY! , I tried EaseUS/recuvar and other recovery tools to recover but it seems that it can't be recovered on that way. I saw some of my files before but when I tried to recover it was corrupted almost ALL!

    I hope you could help me on this guys, I need my files specially my family pictures

    In Diskpart, The Clean command Erases all data on the HDD, not just the C: partition.
    You can try to recover your files using the Free TestDisk Program. I have had the best luck with GetDataBack. You will need another drive of the same size or larger to restore your files to.
