How to Recover Lost Files and Folders after macOS Update?

I've updated from High Sierra to Big Sur and i've lost nearly all my files and folders. Sadly i haven't a backup and i've not enabled icloud sync. I've checked in "Relocated Items" folder but nothing. I've tried with some recovery file software with no luck. Is there a solution or not? Thanks in advance

Hi there, actually, a macOS update won't delete everything on your Mac basically. If you suffer from data loss after the update, it's truly awful. I have viewed all your descriptions and attempts, the only suggestion from me is to try another data recovery software, like iBoysoft Data Recovery Software, to test if it can scan for the missing files and folders.

Hope you can address the 'Mac update deleted everything' successfully. Good luck~
