Can't find old desktop files on hard drive!

Got a new computer today, plugged in my old 500GB hard drive for back up storage. I went into it, can see everything fine, go through the program files, etc...

Except I can't find my old documents, pictures, or anything that was saved on my desktop. A search won't even bring it up. How the heck can I get it back?

  1. what was the old Operating System?
  2. Windows 7.

    I found the "problem". I'm more familiar with XP, so I wasn't too sure where to look, but the files were of course under the Users folder in my old profile. But I still don't understand why it wasn't drawing any search results.
