When you delete stuff, it just deletes the name and marks the space used by the file on the HDD as available. If you then use the computer, that available space may be overwritten. Any recovered (undeleted) file thus may be corrupt. If you need to undelete a file, you have the best chance of recovery if the pc has not been used at all in the meantime. It's a kinda lottery.

Interesting choices in recovery programs :/
Free file recovery tool,
Previous Versions - Restore Files and Folders

There's another good one but can't find it hopefully someone will share it soon,

Depending on what the file types are your probably missing the codec ?
