    I just did a non-destructive restore on my system, and I am trying to retrieve the files from the 'my old disk structure' folder. But, the 'my documents' folder is set to private, and now I can't access the folder. I was wondering if there is any way I can get around this, or can I basically kiss those files goodbye?

    I just finished the process, and have got all of my files back. Thanks for the link, I would have been so heartbroken if I couldn't get my word files.
