If you choose recovery options it should offer images to load.
If it doesn't don't commit, you'll need to backup C:\ partition
Which you should do anyway.

You need to backup partition 2 so that you can recover data.
You may have to do factory restore.
Then you can reload everything.

Too much data there for it to be gone.

You can save an image of drive on another drive or you could clone it. There are other options, but you have to choose. But there are restore points you just can't access them. So if you backup your second partition and do a full system restore then you can figure out how to put restore points back in.
