There are several ways to recover deleted files.
1. If you deleted files in your computer, most likely the files will be sent to recycle bin. You can open your recycle bin to confirm that, if the files are they, you can restore the files by right click, and then choose "Restore Selected Files".

2. If you deleted files on external drive, or memory card, or usb drive, or pen drive, files will be deleted directly. If you emptied recycle bin, or use shift + delete to delete file, or files are big, those files will be deleted directly. In these cases, you need to recover them using recovery service or recovery software.

For recovery service, they are normally expensive. So I normally use good recovery software to do it yourself. One good example is asoftech, which is easy to use and no need technical skills. You can google 'asoftech' to look for more information.

One important thing is that do not save any new files to the storage where files are deleted, because new files could overwrite space of deleted files and make them unrecoverable.

If you can't find a file on your computer or you accidently modified or
deleted a file, you can restore it from a backup (if you're using Windows
backup) or you can try to restore it from a previous version. Previous versions
are copies of files and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a
restore point. Previous versions are sometimes referred to as shadow copies.

You can recover your files with Stellar data recovery software. It will recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive. You can either use the trial version by downloading from their website or send it across to their service centres.

Time Machine would only help you in the future. Is your Mac set up with Time Machine? If so you should be able to recover the lost data that way. Click the Time Machine icon in the dock. Then go back to before you deleted the files, they are probably still available.

There's How to use Time Machine to back up or restore your Mac.

If you don't have a Time Machine backup yet,

Maybe you can try uFlysoft Data Recovery for Mac, it can recover your lost data on Mac only in three steps:

Step 1. Launch the software to scan the device where your files deleted

Step 2: Preview the scan result files and make mark if it is the one you find

Step 3: Recover files

1. If you deleted files on computer, first check the recycle bin and backup. Or you could use recycle bin recovery software to recover files from emptied recycle bin.

2. If you deleted files from portable devices such as USB flash drive, SD card, camera or others, there are many recovery software to solve it. I personally used RePicvid Free Photo Recovery and it worked well.

3. If you deleted files from phone internal storage, first check "Recently Deleted" (for iPhone) or Google Photo. If not, i would recommend Gihosoft Android/iPhone Recovery.

Data recovery depends because you can recover lost or any deleted files by restoring it from a backup (in case you are using Windows backup) or if you want, you can restore it to a previous version. These files are called Previous versions because they are copies of files and folders that Windows automatically saves as part of a restore point.

First consider recovering deleted data from a backup (but if you have any, you won’t pop up the question here, so let’s move forward).

Recover deleted files with Recycle Bin:

Right-click on the icon on the desktop.

Choose Open from the context menu.

Check and select files to recover.

Right-click on the files you need.

Choose Restore from the context menu to recover selected files (you can also drag the files directly out of Recycle Bin).

If you have permanently deleted files, don’t worry; you still have a great chance to restore deleted files. To recover them, you can right-click on the file and select Restore previous versions if you have enabled System Restore for it before.

If the System Restore configuration cannot help you, go seek help from the third-party app to recover the deleted files for you.

First of all, did you check your Recycle Bin?
If the files are no longer in there, you will need a tool to recover them. Fortunately for you, Windows doesn't actually delete files, it just removes them from its "table of contents". So if the files have not been overwritten with other data, you should be able to recover them. Card Data Recovery is nice program that can help you get back deleted file due to mistakenly delete, virus attack, format, etc.

It depends on how you deleted your files. Deleting into recycle bin,you can go to the recycle bin, right click the files you want to recover and select 'Restore'.
Deleting after emptied recycle bin,you can recover your files with data recovery software I have succeed with Tenorshare.It can recover data after deeply scanning your hard drive to look for lost files you accidentally deleted. But once the deleted files were overwritten by new ones,they are gone for good.Anyway,download a trial version and scan your hard drive for free to check out whether the deleted files can be recovered. 
Deleting with shift and delete keys,those files can be recovered with recovery software as well.
