When thought of deleting some unwanted files and ended up deleting wanted files in addition by mistake, the first option that should come in mind is to check your Recycle Bin.

Use File Recovery Software
There might be at times your Recycle Bin may fail you to get your deleted files. Recycle Bin is for keeping files that were deleted recently. With this, the only thing you can use for that situation is to get recovery software.
I have tried so many file recover software and confirmed how they work. Few to mention are: EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard and Recuva.
These are the software I have tested myself, for recovering files on my personal computer.
All that a user is needed to do is to download and install any of the software above, run it and select the source for the file you want to recover. This should scan and bring you the needed file you want for you to recover.
Just tap on restore or recover based on the particular recovery software. Select the new location to save the recovering file to and click on ‘OK.’
