Ethereum Wallet upgrade to 0-8-8 deleted my account - no backup

I am relatively new to mining- and after upgrading my Ethereum Wallet to 0-8-8 my account that I had mined about 36 ETH in (https://ethermine.org/miners/235684b554500a3192561dE58769F8B85cB3F04E) has disappeared from my C:\Users\MYUSER\AppData\Roaming\Ethereum\keystore folder- the only thing in there now is a "new" account I created today in the new 0.8.8 program. I tried to unlock my old account using the command geth --unlock "0x235684b554500a3192561dE58769F8B85cB3F04E" --password "C:pass.txt" (created pass.txt ahead of time) and I get the error (no key for given address or file) - which of course is right- the keystore for that account is missing in C:\Users\MYUSER\AppData\Roaming\Ethereum\keystore. There has to be a way to retrieve these ETH.
