APFS Data Recovery - How to Recover Deleted/Lost Data from APFS

"Yesterday my child mistakenly deleted all the contents of the desktop and has cleared the trash. I don't have the habit of backing up files frequently. Some of the recovery applications I've tried can't recover files from APFS. Is there any good way to help me recover deleted files from APFS? Thank you."

"I formatted my 128GB flash and added some files in the APFS file system. Later, I reformatted it to HFS+ and thought that my data is already on my Mac. However, all the data disappeared. Please suggest how to recover this folder from the APFS file system?"
