After an empty trash you have to get a serious utility maybe from here obviously other then v - lab. Most drives don't really erase, they just mark the data as no longer used on the physical part of the drive, and sometimes over write it. But some utilities can uncover the layers - a good idea not to save anything new until all attempts are tried

If you have saved anything since deleting the files, they may have been overwritten. This can also happen if the OS uses the drive for virtual memory.
