How to fix windows 7 on a SSD after deleting folders off seperate hdd

I foolishly removed folders from my HDD which I mistaken for one I was cleaning up.

For some reason there were windows folders on it even though my operating system is on a separate SSD.

I did it in mini XP using hirens.
I tried several ways to reinstall and recover the folders before restarting my pc to see if I had stuffed up.

On restart it went into repair mode,I tried a few things, still no good.

Two questions, 1 why is there OS folders on my HDD? 2 can i recover or do i reinstall?
