try changing the boot to c: drive. I think I post an answer already. You have probably re-installed windows onto a fat partition f:, so it no longer sees your old files. Try changing the boot, if that does nothing, you can try to do a windows second "repair option" and see if it shows your old drive listing as one that can be repaired rather than f. Before attempting that, you may wish to download "recuva" or pc files inspector", both are free data recovery programs, to get the data off before you try more drastic options.

If you have access to another computer it is probably possible to retrieve your data. Then you can do a proper reinstall on the computer,
