    Holy crap. I think I just deleted all my Documents Folder and am freaking panicing now.

    Argh! Is there any way to get it back?

    Thanks

    Check the Trash.

    (Left Click) on the Trash can to open it in Finder. Locate your Documents folder in the trash, drag the folder out of the trash and put it back where it came from.

    Did you empty the trash? If so, get off the computer now and stop using it. There are some data recovery tools and services (they all cost a fair amount of money) that may be able to help you recover the data, but the more you use the computer, the less likely that they will work.
