What did you try? It's pointless for us to tell you to do things you've already done?

Like .... did you try to take ownership of the folders and files?

See this article on how to do this. Download and run the .reg file and a Take Ownership selection is added to the right click context menu. Very nice:

If they are encrypted and you don't have the key then that are lost forever.
