How to recover deleted videos and audio files without Time Machine backup?

A few days ago, I have accidentally deleted my 489 GB of videos and audio files collection from macOS High Sierra, and I don’t have a Time Machine backup available. Is there any solution available to recover my lost videos and audio files back?

If there are no available Time Machine or cloud backups you can use to restore the deleted videos and audio files, data recovery software for Mac could be helpful. As long as the deleted data haven't been overwritten, it is highly possible to recover deleted videos and audio files from Mac hard drive.

Stop writing data to the Mac hard drive immediately when you find you have accidentally deleted or lost files on it. When you deleted files from the drive, those files are temporarily marked instead of permanently removed from the drive. That's why data recovery software can retrieve deleted/lost files, such recovery software, and search for those "marked" files and make them visible to you.
