Default Access is Denied trying to access customers' folder?

Hey all. I have a customers HDD which has a corrupt Windows installation on. I need to backup the users areas in Documents and Settings but two of the accounts have passwords on thus when trying to access the folders, I get the "Access is Denied" message.

Is there any way to get around this?

Regards
