I just lost all my files randomly?

I had shortcuts on my desktop to folders with homemade videos with family, I right clicked then clicked on pin to start, then moved them from my desktop to recycle bin. Opened the start menu, clicked on the start menu short cut (was decluttering my desktop), said it can no longer be found, so I go to the recycle bin and it’s not there? It’s also nowhere in the C drive or D drive, I have no idea what happened.
