    If you have DiskWarrior you can try its "file salvage" mode, or you can try the program called File Salvage.

    But it's likely to be gone. You've been using the computer since this happened, the space where the file was has probably been overwritten.

    Back up your important folders! This one might be lost for good.

    That would be a nice topic to read about the importance of backing up everything on your computer. But I agree with t he above sadly. Your folder might be gone forever.
