Lost files after accidentally transfering files the Recyle Bin

Team, I was dragging files from GoPro Hero 5 Black when I accidentally dropped the files into an open Recyle Bin Folder.  The PC askded me if I wanted to continue because the files would be deleted, I clicked NO, and the files from my camera and the Recyle Bin are gone. 

 

Any ideas on how to find them or should I try to recover them with software off the SD card?

 

Attached is a screenshot of the process I was able to recreate.
