I fixed it but figured i would leave a reply so if anyone else ever needs to do this it will be here. you must start up in safe mode, logon as the user whom you want to access the folder, go c drive documents and settins right click on the folder go to properties then at the top menu to to security. in security click advanced at the bottom then at the top menu again go to users. near the bottom is a small box checkit click ok wait and it should work.

Hello, I read your comments on how to recover or get your documents out of that Microsoft Private Folder, but it didn't work for me. Can you send me the directions again? I really would appreciate it. I see my files but they won't open right. Thanks in advance.
