Lost all projects and settings in most recent update

I recently updated my pycharm and all of the project files were deleted. I was able to recover some by remaking the empty folders and then going to local history, the issue is a lot of the actual python files are blank. All of the files were there but certain ones had no content. I'm not sure if they are recoverable, but I have never deleted the directory I have them saved to so I don't know why it happened in the first place. I wanted to know if there was any way I could recover the code that was within some of these files because currently I am scared to even mess with anything further.

PyCharm update shouldn't affect your project files in any way unless you store the project somewhere where PyCharm keeps its config files, which is not recommended to do. Where do you store your projects?
If Local History didn't help in restoring the files, then I'm afraid there is nothing PyCharm can do about it as Local History is not a substitute for a proper VCS.
