Help needed with windows 7 csc file recovery

I have walked into a nightmare scenario that started with a sbs 2003 server that crashed, then was virtualized, then was run for 2 years with a 125 GB exchange data base. The company called me in when the server crashed and the “admin” said he didn’t know what to do to fix it. Long story short got a backup image running long enough to copy files to a safe drive. Created new domain running server 2008 r2 and exchange 2010, everyone happy and now I can bill. But wait. I get a call the “admin” joined a window 7 laptop to the new domain and the user had stopped the files from syncing on his laptop for 6 months because “it took too long”.
So his life and all his work is now in the CSC folder, (I am assuming). How do I get the files so I can copy them and allow him to use them?
