how to find appdata on windows.old computer? RRS feed

  • Question


    Sorry, I have no clue where to post this question.  I recently did a custom install of windows 7 to fix a silverlight program problem. In the process I wiped my incredimail email program. So to retrieve my old emails and contacts I have follow steps outlined by incredimail. I have to navigate to appdata but that brings up appdata in the "new computer".  I *THINK* I need appdata in windows.old so that I can go to  C:\Users\Your Profile Name (Logon Name)\AppData\Local Settings\IM.  

    Does anyone know how I can find appdata in the windows.old computer? Sorry, I'm not very computer savvy.  Cheers!
