My friend with a Mac thought she was deleting from the Cloud. When she emptied her trash on the computer it deleted the originals. Can they be restored anywhere.

STOP! Let me further emphasize STOP. Do not use the computer. There are many programs for retrieving deleted data from Mac. Wait for a valid post as to which as many are no good and could make the missing stuff harder to retrieve.

The stability of an OS is in direct proportion to the stability of the user.

I've used TestDisk (PhotoRec) a couple times. But the OS itself is always caching things to the disk, so it's possible the blocks have been overwritten already.

Thanks for the information. I'll remember the cautions about turning off the computer if it ever happens to me. I do routine backups so I feel fairly confident about my stuff.
