Depends how you reinstalled.
If you reinstalled using the manufacturers disk, you probably wiped out the backups at the same time.
Generally, a recovery install using Windows installation media will retain all user account settings, including documents.
Look in C:\Users Using Explorer\Computer
If you can see a folder for your old username, or there are two folders for your current user name, you may be in luck.
Under each user folder, ther should be a folder called documents. See if your files are in there.
If not, you've probably lost your backups as well. I'm not a Vista expert though, so someone more familiar with Vista might be able to help.
Post back some more details about your PC please, including:
*What version of Vista (displayed at bottom of startup screen)
*How many Hard Drives
*How you Reinstalled Vista
*Make and Model of Computer
