Generally, the file you delete would go to the Recycle Bin first if you didn't use the shortcut keys for permanent deletion or empty the Recycle Bin, and it's very easy to recover them. You only need to open the Recycle Bin, find the Excel files and click to restore them.

While there is also another situation that you deleted the Excel files dierectly by "Shift + Delete" or emptied the Recycle Bin after you deleted the files. At this time, you need an Excel file recovery software like ondershare Data Recovery or  Wondershare data recovery for mac to help you perform a recovery.
