Default File restore

I was wondering is it possible to restore large video files on an old PC. The files would have been deleted two years ago and the drive would have had various files and programs uploaded and deleted over the years. Also the drive recently crashed and althought it was restored a number of application no longer work. Any info would be great

the only way is with a electron microscope and at least 100 hours worth of work
