The simple fix here is to take ownership of the files. In practical use, it may be a bit more complicated (permissions are sorta flakey!). This fix doesn't apply if the EFS is used (or the folders were made "Private") - that requires that the user has made a backup of the privacy key.
In XPPro, right click on the file/folder in question and select Properties, then the Security tab, then the Advanced button, then the Ownership tab. Double click on your username in the dialog box and then click on OK to change the owner of the files (also, ensure that the checkbox below the usernames is checked so that ownership will be carried down through the directory structure).
That should allow you to access the file/folder and you should be able to copy it. Copy it to a FAT32 disk in order to be sure that the file permissions are gone.
