As you've deleted the data or files from Mac Trash Bin, you can't simply recover the data by the 'Put Back' function in Mac Trash. But don't worry, this doesn't mean the deleted files that were previously kept in the Trash folder are gone forever from the Mac hard drive.

In fact, it only marks the storage space the deleted files used to occupy can be used for new data writing. That is to say, there is an opportunity to recover the deleted files as long as the data haven't been overwritten. 

Therefore, stop any data writing steps to the Mac hard drive immediately and perform deleted data recovery ASAP! If you have backed up your Mac with Time Machine or iCloud before, you can perform data recovery using Time Machine or iCloud. But if you have no backups in hand, then the data recovery software should be your last option to retrieve your deleted files.
