Xbox deleted everything from hard drive

I turned off my Xbox this morning.  I turned it back on and a message popped up saying my console needed a system update.  I downloaded the update and it deleted everything off of my hard drive.  How do I get my lost data back?

Are we talking a game patch or a full system update? As there are no full system updates doing the rounds at this time as far as I know. The only time your Xbox will think it needs updating is when your hard drive is failing or has failed. The resulting complete data wipe would point to the latter.

Hello. Can you tell me what Xbox you are using.

If your data has just disappeared, the first thing I would recommend is to log out of your account on your xbox, then power it off. Turn it back on and log in.

There may just be an error.
