What do you mean by "private folder?"

Do you meant to say you encrypted the folder with Encryopting File System?

Assign full admin rights\permissions to the folder to access it.


Right click on the folder, go-to "sharing and security" select the "security tab" if the administrator exists on this folder give them full rights, if the administrator does not exist add them with full rights.

What you need to do is to take Ownership of the files. Follow the directions at;en-us;308421

and that should cure your problem.
