I ran CCleaner and lost my fonts

Hello everybody, I ran CCleaner yesterday and checked the fonts cleaning up option thinking it was just going to delete my cache like latest used fonts and such. I opened some files today and they are all misconfigured now as apparently it deleted all my non-original fonts, google fonts or other ones Ive been installing over the years. I'm a designer and this means it has deleted approximately +300 special fonts, is there any way to restore them? Oh and also It's like Font Book is broken cause I can't install other fonts either now. 

Thanks!

If this was on a PC I would recommend that you try our free Recuva file recovery tool (https://www.ccleaner.com/recuva). Unfortunately, we do not have a file recovery tool for the Mac.

Freshly deleted files have an extremely high chance of recovery. Uncertain what there is in the way of free file recovery software for the Mac though. Try here? https://www.macworld.co.uk/feature/mac-software/best-data-recovery-apps-3681531/

Hello Dave, thanks for your help! I actually found my fonts on their usual location /Library/Fonts, but apparently is Font Book which is not re-installing them or recognizing them either as installed fonts. Could it have gotten corrupted or re-configured? 

Thanks!

PS/ System fonts apparently took a toll too. I'll try restarting now.

@yohanna BTW, just to check - you are running the latest CCleaner for Mac 1.15? Also, are you running MacOS 10.14 Mojave or an earlier version?
