Notice before Recovery
Recovering the deleted files is possible but you should stop any additional writes to the hard drives – shut down the computer asap once you find you deleted the important files.
Actually, the files are still there, you just removed the directory entries, not the files themselves. The the space will be marked as free and available for new data. But writing to the drive will overwrite the space once occupied by the deleted files which will lead to the recovery failure.
