How to Recover Files Deleted From iCloud But Still Stored in MacBook?

Yesterday I accidentally downloaded the "Downloads" folder from iCloud to Mac, and there was not enough memory. And without thinking, I immediately deleted it and cleaned the trash on my MacBook. Then it turned out that the files were deleted not from my MacBook, but from iCloud. How can I recover deleted files?

Well, it's easy to fix that to recover files deleted from iCloud but still stored in MacBook.

For this problem, you can sync the files back to iCloud. Back up it again and it will show in your iCloud.

You can log in to iCloud.com to recover files deleted both from iCloud Drives and other apps within 30 days, whether you deleted them on iCloud.com or another device that has iCloud Drive turned on. However, you cannot recover or restore files you have permanently deleted.

But you can use third-party software to recover your files. I recommend iBoysoft Data Recovery for Mac to you.
