How to recover files that were in windows.old?

I'm looking for 2 pics I had just screenies of itunes so I can see what the playcount of the songs were.
Anyway I did custom install and took everything I neeed from windows.old but forgot those 2 pics but now I've deleted the windows.old folder through the disk cleaner.

Is there a way to recover those files?? Oh yeah they were in the my pictures in old windows folder.

I downloaded recuva but don't udnerstand it so well

When I first ran recuva, it opened to a wizard. Select pics/next then I'm not sure (search everywhere)/next and start. You can check the deep scan box, but it will take more time. If you don't see the wizard, then select your C drive and in the search box dropdown select pics and hit the scan button.

You will then have to search through all the found files for the ones you want.

Hope this helps.
