How to get back deleted file/folder?

Hi,
I deleted a folder, its size was more than 10GB it had a few games which I didn't want but now I want to get it back as it has a few setup files and saved games. When I deleted it, the folder didn't go to recycle bin it could be because of the size, but I didn't get any pop ups about the same either. Please tell me how to get it back.

Thanks,
Chinu
