Default In deep trouble

I guess the best place to start is to tell you what I have done to get myself in this mess. I wanted to try the new beta of Windows 7 on my computer so I thought I would do a complete PC backup of my system before doing anything else. I did the backup to an exturnal USB hard drive and it completed successfully and the file was 108Gb. in size. I also did another backup but this time just of the picture, music, etc. files. This also completed without incident. After playing with Windows 7 for about a week, I thought I would try and restore my pictures, music files to see what they look like on the new OS. This is when things went wrong. The 108 Gb and 6.7 Gb backup files shrunk to 33.5Gb without any input from me. Now when I try to restore and on the files, all I get is folders without anything in them. I really need to get my pictures and documents back or else I'm in deep doo-doo. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks
