what are you using for a backup? If you don't have a backup then you can take a look at this:

You should always have a backup of this information as it is not easy to recover.

you can do a recovery database then but that isn't the easiest thing to do. Where did you delete the file from? if you did it from outlook you can check the recover deleted items folder as it may be in there.

Without pulling a backup and creating a restore database there doesn't sound like there will be any way to recover those files

Here is a great article on the restoration process of Public folder database, it's not easy by any means but this is a good walk through guide.
