Documents deleted by dropbox

New member | Level 2
New member | Level 2

Hello everybody,
is there a possibility to rescue deleted data?
I tried to install dropbox via mac desktop but wanted an own window for the dropbox programm, but it didn't open up. So I thought I installed something wrong and wanted to reinstall dropbox. So I deleted dropbox. Problem is: I thought the syncronization would only sync the data like I cloud. But what I didn't know, dropbox took documents, downloads and the desktop into it's folder because of the syncronization and now all my documents, downloads and desktop data are deleted....
Any possibilites to rescue these data?

I have a timemachine backup from march, but the most important data of the 3 last months are still deleted...
Please help... I am completely desperate...
