Accessing secure folders

I've recently re-formatted my computer, and completely forgot to backup the
data in one of the users folders (C:\documents and settings\name). Now, I no
longer have access to that folder in any way. If I know the password that was
set on the users account, is there any way to access these folders again?

Thanks for the quick reply! When I get home, I'll try that.
