Potentially, yes.

The first thing is that your friends should not save anything else to the computer (or realistically use the computer) until you have tried to recover the files. When you delete something typically, it actually stays there until it is overwritten by saving something else to that spot on the disk. So, the more the computer is used, the more likely the erased data that you want to try to recover is lost forever.

Next would be to try a data recovery program. The only one that I am directly familiar with is Data Rescue by Prosoft, which is NOT free. You can down load the "trial" and have it scan for the erased files and it will tell you if what it believes it can recover. To actually recover them, you would then need to purchase the program.

There are free options out there as well. Since I have not used or directly aware of any free programs, I cannot really offer any suggestions. The closest I might offer that is free is to look at EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac. I have no experience with it nor with any other program from the company, but I have seen many regular users from these forums recommend their backup software.

Had the same problem last week. My good friend advised me this free file recovery software https://www.cleverfiles.com/free-data-recovery.html. With its help I recovered all deleted files in an hour. Very convenient. Despite it's commercial software you can recover 100MB of data for free.

Hi,

 

Is your Mac set up with time machine? If yes, then you should be able to get the deleted files back that way.

If you don’t have a time machine backup yet, then your best option would probably be a recovery software for Mac. If new data files have not yet been written over that space, the old data is still there and may be recoverable

 

Hope you find this useful..

There are lots of ways to recover them. Firstly please define me, you can use any recovery tool or manual recovery process.
