    a. If you saved the encryption key use that to decrypt the files. Or,

    b. If you have unencrypted backups use those. Or,

    c. Learn to live without those files.

    There may be some software for this, but since you have formatted the computer/reinstalled OS, I don't think you can recover them because the information for decryption would have been with the previous OS.
