    As stated, browse the C: drive, if you have a Windows.old file, it will have your previous install, (ie) Pictures, Music, Documents and previously installed programs. Once you have successfully restored what files (not Programs) from this folder you want to your User file, you can run Disk Cleanup and click the Clean UP System Files button make sure Previous Windows installs is checked.

    Be careful with this, make sure not to delete any important system folders/files.

    This is how to reveal every single file in your Windows operating system:
    1) Open File Explorer (pretty much any folder)
    2) On top, press View > Options (to open Folder Options)
    3) Press the View tab of the new window
    4) Do the same thing as the image that I attached > Apply > OK

    Click image for larger version.
