If you did a repair re-installation then your files may under C:/Users/<old username>. If you did a fresh install then, for all intents & purposes, your documents have been deleted & written over.

johnr, I'm surprised you didn't know this:

If you did a restoration back to factory (a clean install), you may be able to recover your documents, pics and files using Recuva.
DON'T install any progs untill after you have recovered your precious files...if you do, you will over write them and they WILL be gone.

Some HELP in posting on plus free progs and instructions Cheers
