I was on Build 7000 and had a few sticky notes on my desktop. In my haste to use Build 7100 (RC), I did a clean install of 7100 on the same partition and it put my previous installation files in a folder Windows.old. Can anyone help me with where I can find and recover my sticky notes in the Windows.old folder so I can place them on my new desktop?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Josh. I've never seen this documented anywhere and couldn't find this information on Google (which is pretty shocking). They certainly hide it well. Thanks again.
