Official Response
After a few internal cross-checks, we're very sorry to inform you that once a file has been deleted using Secure Erase, it can no longer be recovered. The Secure Erase feature is designed to permanently delete the file from your hard drive so that no recovery tools could retrieve it.

This probably doesn't help at all now, but here's a how-to doc for how to use Secure Erase for future reference:
Using the Secure Erase feature of Trend Micro Security

Again, we're sorry to hear about your situation.
