Hi aniwaa,


If you deleted them would go to Recycle bin, if emptied the recycle bin then you will need a file recovery program to retrieve them off hard drive.


Do not believe there is no other way to recover or find them yourself if cleaned the recycle bin.


Try this if looking for a free program or google File Recovery Programs  https://www.piriform.com/recuva


Always back up files make system restore points.

You should try your computer to its time when you have had not deleted the files.

But it only works when you want currently deleted files.
