lost restored files

i just accidentally deleted my entire catalouge of movies and games from utorrent to the recycle bin. I then entered the recycle bin and restored each of emediatly. I cannot find even 1 of those supposedly 'restored' files anywhere on my hard drive. I know the files are there somwhere due to the amount of space left on my hard drive. i have searched every whre i can think of. If i dont find them i have lost 15 gb of space on my hd because i cannot even delete them plus the torrentz

whre have these files gone ?
