If you did a destructive re-install (ie reformatted the c: drive before loading windows) and your data was also on the C: drive they're gone.

If you have restored to factory settings and using the restore discs or from a partition on the computer.....they are gone for good.

If you used the partition on your harddrive ,it would normally give you at least 3 options,one of them is to leave files and settings alone and repair windows.

Basically if you have formatted your drive and reinstalled your operating system,then im afraid you have lost everything.
