hello, i accidentally delete videos that i make and its very important. i tought it was gonna go to recycle bin but its not! i think because of the size is 40+gb? and i already use easeus, recuva, diskdrill and no result. i think its been overwritten. i cant use system restore because of the date point is before the making of videos. And what to do now? because its very important video for my company. please help me

If you've tried the typical consumer level tools to no success (and you have)...
and if it has been overwritten...a 40GB file, almost certainly parts or all have been actually over written...
and if there is no backup (WHY NOT?!?)

This is when you beg your boss not to fire you.
That thing is gone.

"ofc there is no backup"
Why 'of course not' ? That is a standard concept in any rational business, or even home setup.

"and i already use easeus, recuva, diskdrill and no result. "
If you tried those to no effect, you are out of luck.

Maybe try Autopsy.

I don't want to pour salt on one wound, but the damage has been done...
  • when you deleted that video, you're reminded that it's too big to go to Recycle Bin;
  • if this video was so important - why there was only one copy?
yes, my fault its that i didnt read that reminder, instead just fast enter button

dood, you're the one with the missing file.
If it is a BRAND NEW THING you just created....surely you still have all the source files.
Or if you didn't "create" this, get it from the same place you did earlier.

Autopsy is a very comprehensive tool.
It is free. try it.
