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......

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
