How to restore encrypted files

Many years I encrypted most of my data through an option I found on windows xp. I think it was with right click...
Then I formatted my pc.
I was really devastated because the person who advised me to encrypt my files, did not mention that you have got to have a KEY to decrypt them, if you format....
I remember I googled everything but could not find a solution. I read somewhere that if I had a copy of one of these files unencrypted I could use it somehow to find the key.
I realize that this must be beyond my abilities. However, I might even be willing to learn to save GB of photographs and memories I have stored.
So I did find a picture I had stored again through google. Is there anything I can do?
