If you did a factory restore then I am pretty sure that it is not created during this process. If you did a clean install from a Windows 7 install disk without first deleting the existing partition then it creates the 'windows old' file, but when you do a factory restore from your recovery partition then it is assumed that your installation is beyond repair or badly infected and just wipes the partition clean and reinstalls back to the factory shipped condition.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
