If you know the name or part of the name of the deleted files or folders, create a search pattern, similar to a search in Microsoft DOS or Windows.
The asterisk or star symbol (*) is used as a wild-card character. The search engine looks for the file name, replacing the star with any number of characters.
The question mark symbol (?) is used to replace a single variable character. The search engine looks for the file name and replaces the question mark with another single character.
* - All named files on the drive or in the folder *.TXT - All files with the suffix "TXT" My*.* - All files starting with "My" MyFile.txt - Search for the file named "MyFile.txt". My p????. - All files starting with "My p" text, having eight characters in the file name and no suffix or extension
