How To Recover Accidentally Deleted macOS Partition?

Alright so I have bootcamp and Window 10 works fine still. I was trying to make another partition from my much larger Mac OS partition while in disk utility in recovery mode and accidentally clicked erase volume group or something to that affect. The process took seconds and my entire hard drive other than bootcamp was unallocated space. Inside of Disk Management in windows, I can still see the space. It says Healthy (Primary partition). I need to do this while saving the data. I have a USB drive but can someone tell me how to either remake the partition that my Mac OS and important files are on or secondly how to read and save my files either from Windows or from another Mac I can connect to this one using a USB C cable while the files are not in a mounted proper partition?? Thanks!

Hi there, I get the conclusion that you can still boot into macOS Recovery Mode with no hiccup, then I recommend you apply data recovery software in Recovery Mode and try to scan for the deleted files and partition. iBoysoft Data Recovery Software is suggested here, which does well in disk scanning and data recovery in the meantime.

You should learn how to run Mac data recovery in recovery mode beforehand so that you can perform iBoysoft Data Recovery Software in macOS Recovery Mode successfully.

Once you boot into macOS Recovery Mode and install iBoysoft Data Recovery, you can launch it to begin data recovery then.

Step 1: Select your Mac hard drive to scan for lost data.

Step 2: Preview files for recovery.

Step 3: Select files you want to recover and click Recover.

If you fail to recover the deleted partition, then you need to reinstall macOS in recovery mode. Moreover, please back up your computer on a regular basis to avoid data loss.
