Hello, I want to ask for your help .
I just find out that I have some btc on my old adress that i used on freebitco.in .

Now, I remember using multibit-hd wallet for windows .
I found my 12 words + datastamp + pass and a file with zip.aes .

My question is, how can I recover the bitcoin ?
I tried installing multibit-hd, restore wallet with words but after sync the amount is still 0 .

Any ideas how can I recover bitcoin ?

You could try using Electrum instead of MultiBit HD... I'm not sure if MBHD is still working correctly.

Create a new wallet in Electrum, select "I already have a seed", enter your 12 words, click the "Options" button and select "BIP39 seed", then use a derivation path of m/0' when prompted. You can follow this video for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E-KcY6KUVnY

However, you said the BTC was on freebitco.in... which probably means that the coins are in the freebitco.in wallet... not in your MBHD wallet. I would think that you would need to log into freebitco.in and see if the coins are there.

I think the problem is that, the adress with money doesnt belong to the wallet that i have backup ..

If i only have the adress and transaction id can i find where it belongs?

You can find the amount that the adress holds by using a block explorer such as http://blockchain.info, but other then that, no.

You can't access nor recover  your bitcoin with only the adress + transaction id.

Unfortunately you can't recover your coins without the private keys (which are derived from the 12-word-seed).
Do you know why the one address containing money isn't part of your wallet?

If your wallet was a Hierarchical Deterministic (HD-)wallet, which it probably was, then you only have to back it up once.
Each address generated afterwards is still part of this HD-wallet (and therefore also from the same backup).

If you once imported the private key into a wallet thats a different thing. But some wallets still export those in their native backup files.
Sweeping, by the way, is not the same as importing. If you swept your btc's from a wallet they are indeed sitting in your wallet (and therefore contained in your backup).

I would definetly recommend to import your seed phrase into a wallet and check if an address contains any BTC. You may still have luck.
As already mentioned above, electrum (https://electrum.org/#home) is pretty suitable.
If there aren't any btc's in your imported wallet, you could still try to check the file-backup. It may be a backup containing other private keys.
