Retrieving data files after having hard drive replaced

I had to replace the hard drive and reload everything. I had to reinstall smartware and it identified my old foles as other backups. I am not able to retireve these files. How do you do this?

Hello, welcome to the community.

Have you tried accessing the drive directly and try to pull the information that way?

How do you access the data directly? I am not sure how to do this?
