Recover files hidden by a folder hiding application

Hi, I use windows 7 x86...I had hidden my folders containing files using a folder hiding application { i dont remember the aPP}...Recently i formatted my laptop and reinstalled the windows..The problem is that i cant see the folder previously hidden by the application...Before reinstalling the folder was hidden by the application...

Now when i right click the drive and see the properties it shows the space being used...but still i cant access or see my files...the folder does exist but the hidden folders inside that are not seen......

help me out !!!

You probably lost the files if they aren't standard files with a new installation.

This tutorial might help you find them if they are standard files that are hidden: Hidden Files and Folders - Show or Hide

Ok, if the drive is seperate from the OS, then we have a shot at finding them. Did you try the tutorial I posted?
