*Hi charco, Welcome (Back?)* to Apple's Users Help Users Forums.
Are they still in the trash? Then just drag them out to original location or desktop. If trash has been deleted then you have a problem. A search of the forums may prove helpful. There are several, not cheap, tools you can look at. "Data Rescue" does come to mind but there are more.

What files are they?
You can drag and drop any files that have been moved "to the trash," but if you have emptied the trash it will be difficult to retrieve them, unless you stop using your computer. If that is the case you will need something like Data Rescue II, which may or may not be able to recover your files.
As I was about ready to post I noted that jpfresno, had already replied, but since I had the Data Rescue II link, I decided to post anyhow.IMac 24"/2.4GHZ/320GB/SD/AP/BT; iMac G4 17 80 GB 1.25GHZ, Mac OS X (10.5.3), 20GB iPod Color, iPod shuffle, iPhone
Click on the trash bin and drag the files back to either where they were, or out to your desktop and then back to where they were.

Hi Ferd, Glad you chimed in. I should have mentioned "stop..." and the link will help OP too.11/06 Imac 17 Intel C2D 1 GB 667 MHz SDRam OWC Merc FWHD SuperDuper, Mac OS X (10.4.11), *Do not start vast problems with a half vast mind.*
what a duo You guys should start a double act. You could team up and assault people who have problems with the perfect solutions. Like batman and robin - only more forum-related. You guys can figure out who's who though....
But yeah - on topic... if you have actually deleted the files out of the trash - try not to use your computer till you can run a data rescue program.... it'll increase the chances of recovering the files.
Tip for future:
Use Time Machine. (If you have leopard). Otherwise use iBackup.iMac C2D 20" 2.16Ghz ATI 256MB X1600, Mac OS X (10.4.11), Bluetooth Mighty Mouse, iPod 5.0th Gen 30gb.
