  1. Best answer
    First isolate the drive so there is no further write activity going to the drive.

    Sometimes on a reinstall Windows creates a folder called C:\Windows.old at the root level that will have your old data.

    Otherwise you a tool like Photorec will let you carve files from the drive.
