Azure Virtual Machine OS Disk deletes all the data

When I rebooted my virtual machine, I noticed that it takes a long time to redeploy, but wait a minute. After I logged in, it asked me to set up Cortana as a fresh install, and it also removed all the software and files on the operating system disk. It seems that it was formatted or that I was assigned a completely new disk but it did not ask me for any authorization, error or notification, I just delete everything, I need to recover the files that I had on the disk. They weren't on the Temporary Drive, they were directly on C.

Did you create your VM with an ephemeral OS disk? https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/ephemeral-os-disks

IIf yes, then this behaviour is by design and unfortunately any data stored on the OS disk is lost.

@luisrivasn As I understand you need to recover the data deleted from the OS disk am I correct?
