It is the main drive not external drive attached to the computer.

It is not in trash. I have double checked that.

You have to open TM from the Applications folder, then select the date you want from the list that appears on the right hand side of the window that opens on launch like shown below for a week ago on my computer. Then seek your files from there.

Yep. That's caused a few problems....

Are you absolutely certain that you are searching your files in the correct manner noted above?

You have not previously responded to this question from either CubaMark or I in this thread.

I didn't see it mentioned or what app was being used, but some apps will list or show recent files the user has opened or worked on.

Either a right click on the app icon in the dock or from the alls menu on "Recent" I believe. Or check if the app has or uses some sort of "auto-save". Often such files are almost "hidden" for user's Finder use.

It's hard to provide accurate info when complete info hasn't been provided which some users don't seem to understand, and if they don't understand the question, then just say so and someone will explain. All the part of learning.

Thanks. I already tried my best to describe the question clearly.

Did you have experience with the programs? I tried several ones without any luck.

The reference was aimed at the lack of responses to some of the members questions who are trying to help you and get a clearer picture of your problem.

As for the post for some of the recovery suggestions, I don't know as I've only used an older version of Data Rescue that was sort of OK but it doesn't seem to have many positive comments now:

And as mentioned, if a SSD is involved in your missing/deleted files, they've gone kapoof almost instantly they are deleted if that was the case. But if not, they could still be hiding, and that's when I'd suggest using Find Any File.app to attempt to locate them:
