A while back my laptop stopped booting into Windows 7 and instead constantly loaded a blue screen of death. So I installed another copy of Windows 7 and opted to keep the installation of the original copy of Windows 7 intact. (On the boot menu both Win installs are listed). The new installation works fine however I am unable to find my documents on the older Windows installation. I have two Hard Drives listed C: (30.3 GB) and D: (252 GB) both on the same physical drive. If I remember correctly a new partition was created for the latest installation of Windows. The Winodws.old folder exists on the C: drive, however it is empty. I was very careful to make sure that all older files would stay intact during the installation.
Is there a way to retrieve these files from the new installation? If not, perhaps I could boot into the older version and circumvent the blue screen?
