Can You Recover Data from SSD with Trim Enabled?

"Hi, I just now inadvertently deleted the 'wrong folder' from my 2014 MacBook Pro running Yosemite, and then emptied the trash. I don't have a backup of this folder, so I feel very bad at the moment. The worst part is that my SSD drive is with Trim enabled by default. Is there any way of recovering the files?"

Before helping you figure out the answer, let's first take a look at what Trim command is. Trim command, also known as TRIM, allows an operating system to inform a Solid State Drive (SSD) which blocks of data are no longer considered in use and can be wiped internally.

That is to say, once Trim command is enabled in MacOS or Windows OS, when a user deletes a file or formats the SSD, Trim will firstly mark the area and let new data overwrite "this place". Therefore, if your Trim enabled SSD has deleted a file and emptied Windows Recycle Bin or emptied Mac Trash Bin, virtually, you can no longer bring your loss back.
