    If you have flattened the image and have no back-up the Layers would appear to be gone for good.

    Edit: And as you stated you closed the file History is no use here.

    Sorry bud...but if you converted to CMYK and did NOT hceck Preserve Layers and then saved over your original layered RGB file, your layered RGB image is toast–as in gone, as in you are screwed...sorry, but Convert to Profile can flatten all the layers (depending on the options) and once flattened and saved, you have no option to recover the layered RGB file (unless you have is saved somewhere).

    No pfaffenbichler, I have not flattened the image

    If you flattened a file in conversion it’s still you who has made the decision; whether you did it knowingly or unknowingly is not much relevant now with regard to the content you have removed.
