how to find lost files

Using a Epson RX 600 scanner I scanned about 50 +- pics. They were originally saved in C:\Users\HP6000\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\importedpictures&videos. Inside imported pictures and videos I created a folder and saved all the pics into it as well. Then I got smart and decided to clean up my PC and deleted everything in "imported pictures & videos" . After I realized what I had done I opened the recycle bin, but the folder I had created was not there. Some or most of the pics I had scanned were in the recycle bin and I clicked on the restore all button. Now I can not find the folder I created or any of the pics that were restored from the recycle bin. Is there any way to recover the folder and the pics?

Thank you very much for your help

Lost files

Scan in one pic to a known location.

Look at the file extension for that pic.

Use explorer and search for that file extension.

download a data recovery software

First make sure the folder you are saying that my all pics were deleted and you cannot find your folder
so,you do not save or copy any other file on that folder and download the data recovery software scan that folder all your files deleted can be viewed on that software and you can restore all your files you deleted
