Hey there @Pablouna, how are you today?

If those files were deleted back then, unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to restore them unless you were (and still are) on a Dropbox plan with the Unlimited Version History (an old add-on we use to offer in the past) enabled and grandfathered until today. 

If that's not the case, I’m very sorry, but Dropbox can only restore files for 30 days after they're deleted from accounts on the Basic or our Plus plan while this extends to 120 days for our Professional and Business plans. Unfortunately, because those files were deleted more than 30 days ago, we're unable to recover them.

I know it's not what you wanted to hear but I hope it helped clarify matters. 

Let me know if you have any more questions!
