Some files were deleted and could not be restored on the icloud.

I used iCloud as a backup, transferring the old Mac to the new one for trade-in. I used the copy functionally as well. After I found the files on the iCloud and the new one, I did initialize the old Mac. Accidentally I deleted all files on the cloud once I did restore but some files were gone. That's what old Mac used to have them. I attempted to restore functionally on the icloud but it said there is nothing to be deleted. What should I do for restoring files and is there anything to restore them? Thanks in advance.
