I have just (re)installed my OS on my pc so that I may backup files. I was having Windows OS file issues and many things were getting buggy and I had no choice but to install the OS to ANOTHER folder, on the same drive with the original (bad) one. It worked, but it seemed to have deleted my History files (IE7) which I needed to backup as well.

There appears to be no restore point before the installation in the new OS. I tried signing into the older one and many things are too stubborn to check around.
I'm aware the machine does not fully delete files until you format or otherwise... Is there any way to restore my IE 7 browser history from this point??
Much thanks in advance.
