Default Private Folder Problem...

My problem starts when our old motherboard was replaced. After it was installed it cannot read the previously installed OS (Win XP) because it was corrupted so I 've installed a new one, which is the same OS, WIn XP (Professional 5.1). Now in the previous OS three user accounts is created, one account, mine, has a password and the My Documents has the "Make this folder private" checked. After the new OS was installed, all of the three accounts were deleted, though their files (inluding those saved in the desktop) were saved as it was supposed to do. The problem now is I cannot access the private folder saved on my previous account. I've created a new account with the same name but it only creates a new one which has only the same name with my previous account but cannot still access this private folder.

Is there still a way I can make the folder "public" or can I still access the private "My Documents" folder?
