Is this file retrievable?

After lots of problems with my PC I decided to reinstall windows from my external hard drive, unfortunately a couple of files that I need were not on the external hard drive, does this mean they are gone for good or is there any way I could find them?
Thanks

I assume you have restored a windows backup from your external drive using something like Acronis. Either way I'm afraid the chances of retrieving your files are virtually nil.
