restored windows 8, redownloaded metro apps, but their settings are gone

i did a "remove everything and reinstall Windows" and after downloading again my metro apps, settings and progress from 3rd party apps (not the xbox ones) didn't sync, and now i have to play everything from scratch again.



i have a backup and a complete image of the previous installation, is there a way to find and restore the progress files to the new installation?
