Get Previous Options Back After Reinstall

If copying the Options.ini and UserSettings.ini files into your new The Sims 4 folder
(C:\Users\<username>\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\ by default) isn't restoring your settings, you may need to manually set them again in the game. I've run in to this problem with both The Sims 3 and The Sims 4 where updating the graphics drivers and other system related updates would reset the game to the default settings regardless of what was in the settings files. Once you have the settings the way you like them, take a quick moment to jot them down so you have them for any future resets. :)

The saved games should be in the Saves folder. Copying that folder into your new The Sims 4 folder should restore your saved games. The Tray folder is your saved Sims, Houses, etc. If you have any mods, those should be copied last after making sure they've been updated to work with the current patch.
