Recovering files from windows.old folder after reinstalling windows

Dear Team,

I need your help with the following issue.

After reinstalling a new coly of windows 7 i cannot find my pictures in folders windows.old.
The strange think is that i cannot find the pictures and the files that where in a sub folder inside a directory.
The capacity of my hard disk shows that files are not deleted but i still cannot find them.
Can you please help me???

Thank you!!!

try some 3rd party software to get your lost files back. MiniTool power data recovery tool is a nice one and you can get free licenses when they give licenses away.
