I can't seem to find my old C:\Program Files (x86) folder through any of the usual pathways for recovering data from a corrupted user account on Vista... any suggestions?

To be clear, I am NOT talking about recovering documents or general files from the Documents folder- I already have a backup of those- I'm talking about recovering files from the C:\ drive itself... most particularly, my SimCity3000 Unlimited saved cities (pretty much the last thing from my old computer that I haven't been able to find and save)
