    You are most unlikely to be able to recover files erased during an OS reinstallation. You will need to recover whatever you can from your most recent backups.

    Did you check your D: drive? You said that you copied your data to D:.

    You mentioned Easeus. Did you happen to do a backup of the drive before you reinstalled the OS? If so, your files are probably in the backup.

    Try Recuva.

    I've never used Recuva, but in years past I've used similar products. Based on Recuva's description, I think it is your best chance of recovering your files.

    The free version has everything you need for the file recovery attempt.

    One thing to keep in mind -- if Recuva will let you run it from a flash drive, thereby not having to install anything onto either of your hard drives, that is the way to go. The issue is, if you write anything to either hard drive, it may overwrite some or all of the deleted files, making them more difficult if not impossible to recover.
