If it was me i would forget them. It looks like the files are gone and i wouldn't waste anymore time trying to get them back at this point.
I'm sorry for your loss but if I can suggest a backup nightly, weekly or monthly depending on your usage. There are several ways to do this by using cd's, dvd's, usb thumb or flash drives or a external hd.
You can do a complete backup or a incremental one that only backs up what was changed since the last backup.
If it were me i would do a full data backup and to help that I would save your data for programs in a folder with sub folders for each program. This makes it easy to setup the backup program to do only one folder for you.

Acknowledged. Costly lesson, but they're the ones that usually resonate.
Once again, many thanks for your time and efforts.
Best Regards.
