If you meant that you permanently deleted them, then there's probably no way to get them back unless you have a Data recovery program like R-Tools' R-Studio for which you got to spare some bucks. If you don't mind, what did you mean by hitting delete "on the Keyboard?" Was it like hitting Shift+Delete so that you can permanently delete a file or something else?

If you have not made a HD image, or an image of each partition, before now, Recovery partition [which probably contains both boot files and manufacturer's rollback to factory OS & software specs] is very likely gone. MiniTool Power Data Recovery may or may not be able to help recover files.

I used Shift+delete to permanently delete that jpg and then recovered it with the original file name.

NOTE:
1.Do this restore only if your system is bootable even after the files in the Recovery partition
were deleted.
2. You may get a warning message that there are chances that recovery may be unsuccessful if
restored to the same partition. That could happen only if you have added more files after the
deletion as a result of which there may be insufficient space to write the recovered file.As long as
you haven't done that and there is sufficient space in your recovery partition you need not
bother..Say OK and finish Restore.
3. To be safe always keep an image of your system and restore from that image. Macrium Reflect
Free is recommended here. Many times factory restore with the Recovery partition can fail due to
deficiencies in the HDD that may arise over a period of time.

You may download Glary Utilities Free from Glary Utilities | Glarysoft

(The user interface in the new version may be slightly different. I used the old version - old school )

Just for our information report the actual files you restored.

Sorry, I couldn't understand that part of your statement above.

".... it found everything" So I presume you could find all the files you deleted in "very good" state with original file names and were to able to restore those.

Hmmmm...... I should have asked you to post the third screenshot so that we could have seen it ourselves. It just skipped my mind.

Your posts #7 and 8 again I can't understand the problem posed even a bit and so I will give it a pass and let others handle.

@Jumanji: As I understand he is asking how he can do a factory reset after trial period (?) of the AV software ends and whether it will cause any problems.

@Dudeclayton: I would not have done a factory reset just to fool the AV to be honest, and I am not sure if it would work. You can find better free alternatives. A factory reset wont hurt your machine but you will have to reinstall all your applications that didn't come with the laptop, and need to backup your data (you should in any case).
