Is it possible to undo Empty Trash on Mac?

I had a number (about 80) MP4 files saved in a folder on my dock. I then dragged two items from that folder which I noticed were JPEGS into the trash. I then emptied the trash and the original folder on the dock in now empty. I can't find the files anywhere. Is there anyway of getting them back or are they gone forever?

I noticed that you only dragged 2 items from the folder on the Mac Dock into Mac Trash and emptied it. But now all the files in that folder seem missing or lost. That's weird and I believe you may miss some detailed information about the data loss. Luckily, no matter whether you're missing all files or only the 2 JPEG files, they are not gone forever. It's possible to undo Empty Trash on Mac.

Please calm down and try to recall if you've backed up your Mac with Time Machine or iCloud, If you have, you can restore the deleted folder directly to your Mac with Time Machine or iCloud.
