The screenshots provided were for Admin.

Look in the Boss folders/subfolders for your data.

Copy it into the new install's User folders.

In the future, be sure to copy your data first from the OS, or if you can't boot into the OS using a Rescue disk like Paragon Rescue Disk, or Win7 DVD/Repair CD using this trick: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

I would always verify the files are readable on external HD, DVD, another internal HD, network share, etc. before wiping out the OS.

Sorry I read your question wrong, in the Boss file when I open the files it all shows empty even though I chose to show hidden files in folder options. What will happen if I click Restore Previous Version in this Backup file properties?

You can try, but normally that runs System Restore which would need to be on the original System. It is strange if it's showing a previous version, but worth a try since your empty backup folders are otherwise unrecoverable after Factory Recovery.

Any chance you have a windows.old folder in C drive root?

To be honest I have no idea how to check for the Windows.old folder. I'll try previous version now and see what happens. Again thx for your patience.

As stated, windows.old would be in the C drive if that is your Win7 partition. Go Start>Computer>C Drive to look.
