Likely not, unless there were not files written to the volume over the several days you were upgrading.  The expansion would probably get in the way too.

 

you should probably contact support - you might need data recovery.

Ok

 

Thanks for the advice Stephen

 

I packed it up and sent it away to the specialists to see if they save anything
