    This will overtly depend on how you upgraded your system. If you upgrade from Windows Vista they would be in the same location in which you had stored them. For a custom upgrade from XP without reformatting the old files will be stored in a folder called Windows old. To retrive the files follow the steps below1: Open the drive where you have installed Windows (usually, the C: drive)2: Double-click the Windows.old folder3: Double-click the Users folder4: Double-click your user name5: Open the folders that contain the files you want to retrieve. For instance, to retrieve files in the Documents folder, double-click Documents6: Copy and paste the files that you want from each folder to a folder in Windows 7For each user account repeat the steps 4 and 6In case you reformatted your drive or partition the files cannot be recovered.
