Ok so my rule of determining the level of difficulty in data recovery is really 2 questions.
#1 -  is it making any noise
#2 -  is it detected in the bios if you connect it directly to the mobo

If the answer to #1 is yes - then if you want any hopes of recovering the data do not attempt to continue powering it on. It can be making noise because the heads are broken or bent and if that's the case you will scrape the platters and kill the drive beyond any hope of recovery. (data recovery isn't like the way they show it in the movies you cannot actually remove a platter and recover any data off it) And please do not attempt the Freezer Trick - it doesn't work on current drives anymore and actually introduces condensation in the drive that can kill the platters.
If its detected in the bios we can try a couple of things - and i can usually recover the data for about $250 - $799 - over 50% of the time its about $300.

Not sure, if you want to open it up you may be able to put it into a hard drive enclosure that connects to the computer via USB. (They come in 2 sizes 2.5 and 3.5.) I don't know how risky that is though.

Most folders and files were accidentally erased off the desktop.
Many of the folders were very large as they contained years of family pictures and videos.
None of it went to the recycling bin.
We tried Recuva but it doesn't seem to be retrieving the pictures and videos. It's also retrieving files that we can't open.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Sorry for the late response, but find another device and swap the motherboards. Or if the USB debugging was enabled then a computer should work.
 Or Verizon cloud.. many options at first glance.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Installed both but can't figure out how to run them.
They seem like the old DOS programs.
Any help?
Thanks.
