I remember this happened to me too, some 15 years ago, since then I have at least three backups.
Cloud, NAS, external HDD on different place (workplace)

Sorry to read about your troubles ... I've been there a few times and its not a nice feeling but once ya chill out and say " Sod it " You'll get your head down and rebuild it better and more stable than before without repeating the same mistakes ( you'll make new ones like the rest of us do :rofl: )

Good luck with your Arch install
