All your data should still be there on your first PC provided you DON'T write anything else to the disk.

Scan with Recuva (FREE) and recover your files to ANOTHER disk.

If that doesn't work, there is always Runtime GetDataBack :
The next time, copy your files and then delete them when you are sure they have been copied over properly.

All important data should be stored in at least two locations at all times.
Three locations / two sites is better.
I'll agree with Eirman but add a detail or two.

I've used GetDataBack (free to investigate, $100 to do actual recovery) with success many times.  I've never used Recuva but it is often recommended here.

Eirman is absolutely correct about not writing to the disk and about recovering to another disk.  To be clearer, if you really want to recover this data, turn the computer off and don't boot from that disk again.  I am assuming that your boot disk has the data on it.  You will want to do the recovery with your disk as the second disk in a system so that it doesn't get written to in the boot process or at any other time.  If you keep using the disk then you run the risk of writing over the deleted data.

>>  have cut and pasted teh data from my pc to another pc through network   <<  you should not use that - better is simply copy and paste instead
if the cut and paste went thru without errors  -you should have the data on the other pc; can you search for the name of a data file?, or docx, or such?

only if the data is NOT there i would use the recovery soft
