Once the data on the destination (partition/disk) is over-written, there’s nothing you can do to get it back. Make sure you select your destination correctly. If unsure, QUIT and seek help.
Also make sure you select the correct image to restore. Restoring the wrong image is not as bad as restoring an image to the wrong destination, because you can always go back re-restore the correct image.
