SBS 2003 Folder Access Rights

I recently upgraded my Win2k server to SBS 2003.  During the upgrade process, there was a problem when importing/upgrading one of the user accounts ... my own.  Of course I was logged on as admin when performing the upgrade on the server, but my regular user client account did not transfer properly.  I don't think there was a problem with any others, just my own.

So, I had to re-create the account.  No problems when doing this, EXCEPT that now I can no longer access folder on a separate file server that had the security settings set to grant access to my user account only.  Now I cannot access the folders from any account ... mine, admin, even if I log onto the file server directly as admin or using my own account.

Is there any way to retrieve the files from these folders?

You need to take ownership of the folder first (when logged on as administrator), then you can can grant the necessary users/groups access again.
