Windows 7: Recovering files software

Recovering files software

Can anyone help here please? I have just reinstalled Windows 7 due to issues and my backup is corrupt I have just purchased Recova Pro but needed to know if there is any program that you would recommend better.

The files I wish to restore/recover were situated in Documents and Documents/Downloads on the old install so how would I target these particular old folders? I still have Windows.old on the drive but I don't think it saves the old libraries?

All help gratefully received.

Many thanks

Windows.old should save the complete old installation. Browse Windows.old folder > Users, you just might find what you are looking for.
