Sadly I don't think it's possible if you didn't create a backup. It uses military-grade encryption. Unless you have even higher capability decrpyting software it is not possible without backup.

The Disk Drill also needs payment to work...

I agree with MrOwnage, It's almost possible to open again your files normally, since they have 128 bits encryptions. Most of the software seems just to be a preventive and not curing. To cure your files again, the vendors need your original files (as backup) then they try to compare the original vs the infected. As long as you don't have any backing up before infected. It's almost impossible.

Anyway, I'd like to share you some tools as your reference from:

Can't you just format the computer and recover with Recuva or any program for recovering files? Well, I believe the Ransonware is ready for those things

Firstly,you should take off your network cable from internate, but no need to shutdow your system. Because WannaCry will delete your files after it encryptes them. So if you havwn't shutdow up your system,the memory mush store some file remian, you can use some file recovery tool to recover it,but it cann't assure that it can revovery 100%

You can use Kaspersky virus software to kill the virus or reinstall the system, but can not restore the data.
If you want to restore data and clean up the virus, then the steps are more complicated, please note:
