Windows 7: How to find out other user's password

How to find out other user's password

Hello, thank you in advance for your help.

My roommate recently left this place, and as a prank, hid a few important files on another account on my computer

He accessed my account, copied them to a USB, deleted them off my account, created a new account, and put them there. He is pretty good with encrypting files, so im afraid that they are "EFS-encrypted", so i no longer can change the password via control panel

Does anyone have any idea how i can find out the password, without changing it?

I have tried only "net user *account name*" in CMD, but it didn't show the password, only when it was last set, i don't know any other way to solve this.

Again, thank you in advance! .
