Welcome to Apple discussions.
There is software that will retrieve deleted files - but that is a difficult shot in the dark at best. Deleted files are really not 'gone' as the delete removes the pointer, not the file itself (unless one does a secure delete). However, that space is available for new files. If your computer was used after the delete, the file is most probably gone (overwritten).
As I recall, file 'retrieval' software is a bit pricey.
If there is any chance of recovery at all (slim to none I'm afraid) your best bet is Prosoft Data Rescue. There is a free trial to see if it can recover what you need.
Also, a service that has been recommended but I cannot personally endorse is DriveSavers.
I'm just not sure how to check the exact version
You can check the exact version on your Apple menu >> About this Mac.
Good luck, Andrea.
