combined multiple files (two jpgs from my desktop) into a pdf. was not paying attention to settings and did not see that "delete source files" option was checked

 

cant find these source files anywhere-not in my recycle bin, not in cloud or cloud deleted files folder.  searched my entire c drive...nothing

 

where are these files and is there a setting within acrobat to redirect deleted files

If they are deleted, they are gone. You must use your own backups to recover lost files.

I guess this is a new "feature". A very bad one, if you ask me, especially if it deletes the files for good (!).
