By recovery, do you mean that you re-installed Windows?
Sometimes when you reinstall, it can save your files. Other times, it cannot. This will just depend on if you chose to format or not, and what OS you had.

If you recover it back to when you first bought it, all your files are gone.

Ok, open Windows Explorer and and see if there is a folder on the C drive called windows.old

If there is, it should be inside.

Why would you need to perform a search using your external hard drive? YOu can use the search feature in windows.
