I deleted a folder from my mcbook pro 5 years back from the thrash bin as well. Is there any possibility that I can retreive that folder?
Retrieving a deleted folder on a mac

Your best bet is to use Data Rescue 3 or R-Studio for Mac to try and recover it. However, if it has been 5 years, the original data has probably been overwritten. And I highly doubt the whole folder could be recovered, just some of the files that were in the folder. If you try out R-Studio, you can see if it will recover it before you pay for the program.

Emptying the trash on your Mac only to find out something was deleted that shouldn’t have been can seem like a devastating event. However, the files residing in trash may be restored if right actions are taken immediately. When trash is deleted on a Mac (in your case, Macbook Pro), the operating system only removes the location of those files from the address table. The data still resides on the hard drive and sits idly waiting to be overwritten.
If you quickly take the necessary steps to retrieve removed trash, these items are easily recoverable. A reliable recovery software like this may be used to locate specified or all deleted files on the hard drive. This utility scans the volume where the files reside and is able to restore the entire volume, selected folders, certain file types, or individual files. The sooner you use this program to recover trash on a Mac, the less the danger of overwritten data.
These are the basic steps for restoring deleted files from the trash:
- Select the volume to be scanned.
- Choose a recovery method for retrieval.
- Complete the scan.
- Locate and select the trash items to be restored.
- Recover the files.
