The part of the hard drive that has any version of Windows on it now has overwritten any older version that was on the same part of the drive. That would make any of that data unrecoverable. You don't need to recover any Windows files though.

Any personal files MIGHT still be recoverable IF other files have not been written to the same areas of the hard drive.

Your posts above are not clear to me. Are you trying to recover an earlier version of Windows, or some personal files that were on the hard drive when you had an earlier version on there?

If you just need personal files then try using recuva. recuva is free. Download the portable version from the link below and install it to a pen drive.

The more you use that computer the less likely you will recover files.

After two installations to the same drive you have no chance of data recovery due to the data being completely overwritten: twice.

You can still try. Google free data recovery software and try one or two.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

YOu could try recuva from the link below but as stated above, you have likely overwritten some or all of the old data.

To filter what recuva can recover search for only certain file extensions. For instance enter the search string *.JPG for photos. Use the common file extensions for the personal files you are trying to recover.

Try getdataback: http://www.runtime.org/data-recover...

I've had a lot of luck recovering (doing a RAW recovery) with that software, and the nice thing is you can do a trial for free, run a rull RAW recovery to see what it can recover (if anything) and purchase IF there is data there.

Did you upgrade or do a fresh install each time? Or did you create separate partitions for each OS? I'm confused where the partition portions come into play. Thanks for clarification.

Keep backups of your data on a separate hard drive in future. External ones are reasonably priced now. If you never keep backups you are asking for trouble as all hard drives fail eventually, and when that happens even recovery software can't help you.

You can use data recovery program to scan computer hard drive and recover lost data from computer after reinstalled windows. take a look at this one: windows data recovery

It's easy to use. try it and hope that you can get back your lost files.

AS above mentioned suggestions, I have tried all the software to recover data from system. But unfortunately they didn’t work for me, then my friend suggested “remo recover tool” to recover data. After employing this utility I got every single one of them. You can also try this application.

So you are saying you tried recuva and you didn't recover ANY of your old files? If that is truly the case then don't waste your money on any other program. Your files have been overwritten.
