How to Recover RAW Videos?

“While installing few drivers in my XP system, it showed out of space. So, I had to make some space on my hard drive by deleting unimportant data; so I randomly selected some folders and hit on best known delete option i.e. using Shift - delete keys. This was enough; all selected data got cleared out within minutes. After installation of drivers, when I checked out my C drive, I was shocked to see that I had accidentally deleted set of folders that contained RAW videos. I am totally upset and I don’t know what to do. I need those videos back guys please can anyone help me out! Thanks”.
