Hello mkj,

If you had system protection turned on for your Windows drive, then you may be able to use Previous Versions in your C:\Users\(user-name)\Favorites folder to see if you may have an older copy of them available to restore.

If not, then you might see if you may be able to use the free Recuva program on the same folder to hopefully be able to restore them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn
