Why would deleting a single field delete all the data and polygons in entire feature class?

In Pro, was alarmed, nay appalled, when all the attribute data and polygons of a geodatabase disappeared after deleting a single field using the Delete Field tool. I do have a fairly recent backup, but it appears as though I permanently lost the recent data. I tried to undo the operation after using the tool without success. Any suggestions for into what is going on with this delete field tool, and how to retrieve the data, much appreciated.
