Do I understand you correctly:
You have lost your seed because you deleted all your data on your machine and had no backup?

If the answer is yes, sorry for your loss - how much was it?

I lost my seed, does that mean I lost everything in my wallet? Is there no way to recover?  Angry

You need your seed or wallet file to access your coins. If you don't have neither of them for any reason, your coins are probably lost forever.

I do not have anything, what a hell of a shit, it was not a lot of BTC, but the bitter taste of the loss remains. Thanks for the info.

This is why you need to write your seed on a piece of paper and put it in a safe place.

Pretty much every single HD wallet, that utilises seed mnemonics for recovery, advises you to do this when setting up your wallet and checking you have written it down correctly.

Pretty much every guide about using HD wallets that use seed mnemonics advise that you do it.

Hopefully your loss will act as a precautionary tale for at least one person who sees this and immediately goes and writes down their seed and stores it in a safe place before their computer/tablet/phone dies...
