Cannot Access User Account Folders in Backup

  Fiona Treanor 15:46 23 Dec 2006

A bad sector on the hard drive resulted in the system being restored. Prior to performing the restore, a backup of all files was created.
The system is now fully restored and the bad sector isolated however the folders within Documents and Settings for each user cannot be accessed. All other folders can be accessed but the users had passwords and I suspect this is what is stopping me. I have recreated the users with the same passwords but still cannot gain access. I am running Window's XP Home SP2.

Any suggestions how to resolve this?
