Lost Files After Moving and Undoing on Windows 8

I used drag and drop to shift several photographs from one folder to another. I then used Ctrl + Z to try to return them to the original folder. Sadly, I discovered these pictures were gone, and I couldn't even find them in the recycle bin. How do I get them back?
