First, you make sure where the folder you deleted was(for example it was in My Documents)
Then you right click on My Documents, then "Restore previous versions", a window will open and it should list all available options.
tell me if you need help!!!
As you can see, Earlier this Week should be enough if you deleted it today.
You choose when and double click the folder(or "open") - it will let you restore individual files.

The problem with "shift delete" is its purpose is to permanently delete - it does not send the file (or folder) to the recycle bin.
I agree with seavixen and recuva is a good option to try, but as noted, if the disk has been used, chances are greatly reduced. Depending on the value you place on these files, a professional recovery service may be your only option. But note these can be very expensive - costing $thousands.
I assume, you did not have a backup. I recommend EVERYONE, right NOW, backup any data they don't want to lose - ALL hard drives WILL fail, sooner or later.
