how do i recover window.old folder?

Last week i upgraded my window vista ultimate to window 7 ultimate, and there is a window.old folder, i forgot to retrieve my file from the window.old folder and i am stupid enough to delete the folder. The file i want is on the previous window's desktop, so does anyone know how to recover the window.old folder, so i can recover my file again ?

thanks in advance! please help this is urgent

Hi Joey and welcome

You deleted the windows.old folder and have you been using the computer since to install things or add? If that file is important enough to spend money on you might be able to get it back Google undelete programs for win 7.

There is no easy way to do it

Hello, Welcome to the Forums! Sorry to hear this is happening.
The only thing I can suggest is use recovery software, like Recuva. That one is free, but if you don't mind buying software, I recommend Kernel Data Recovery. You can download a trial version too see what it can recover. You need to pay for it to actually recover the files, though.

Try the trial of Kernel Data Recovery. That will tell you if it can be recovered.
