So I've been trying many YouTube tutorials and a few disk recovery programs but sadly most of them are just programs where u need to buy a key for the premium version.

So the origin of the files. The files were some desktop recordings recorded with nVidia shadowplay, but I deleted all of them without knowing I

Do you guys have any suggestions ?

It is not very likely. Once files are deleted, the computer saves other files in its place. It is why when you delete something time is of essence as it's critical to recover them asap.

However there is an old saying "nothing ventured, nothing gained". It certainly doesn't hurt to give it a try.

Recuva is the best home user file recovery software program. There is a free version and purchased version. The free version does just as well as the purchase version. That is here

If Recuva can't do it, then there isn't a home user program out there that can. You'd have to go to a professional file recovery company, and if you do, be prepared to drop some big bucks for the job. However, only you can decide if it's worth the money. Good luck!

If you used your computer at all in that time, and certainly if you used it frequently, they are gone, gone, gone. There's not much I like to say is impossible, but this is one thing. Even if there were some bit of data here or there, a video file needs to be complete in order to play.

Yeah, just as Pooh said. To expound on in more, when you erase something from the HDD it eventually gets overwritten with other data. Depending on the level of the overwrite, you may be able to get the files back but in your case there has been too much time passed. You may have overwritten to that sector a million times since then.
PoohBearPenguin:
It would be virtually impossible to recover those files now since you continued to use the hard drive they were on after deleting them.
