Files imported from SD card are gone after pressing Command Z?

This afternoon I was busy transferring files from my GoPro's SD card to my Macbook, after which they would naturally be deleted. It wasn't until after that that I unintentionally pressed Command + Z in the folder where the files were placed, erasing the contents from both my macbook folder and my sd card. Is there any chance of getting these files back?

To get back the disappeared files, you can press Command-Shift-Z in the folder where the files were stored to redo the undo command triggered by Command-Z.
