I had Windows XP installed on my PC and one of the upgrades crashed the system. I ended up getting Windows 7 installed. I am trying to figure out how to recover the XP files that I had saved in Outlook? These are my former .pst files.

The problem is that those PST files are saved on the system partition and since you have installed Windows 7 those files were deleted during the format phase. Bottom line, you can't recover them since these were deleted and even if you perform a recovery operation, the clusters where they where stored are replaced with new data.
