Restore Users folder from Windows.old after multiple system recoveries
My laptop was getting BSoDs. I tried a system recovery but after it failed, I brought it to a computer shop where they tried three more reinstalls of Windows 7, and Vista to try fix it. I have four Windows.old files - Windows.old, Windows.old.000, Windows.old.001, Windows.old.002. I want to restore the files from my documents from my first version of Windows 7 but there are no files in the My Documents folder in Windows.old. Is it possible to recover the files.
Thanks in advance.

Double check in each of the four Windows.old folders to see if one of them may contain the files. In addition, check to see if you have either C:\$INPLACE.~TR or C:\WINDOWS.~Q folders, and check to see if the files are in them.
Once you have what you wanted to recover, you could use the tutorial below to delete the four Windows.old folders to regain the HDD space they are taking up.
Windows.old Folder - Delete
Hope this helps,
