If this were possible, you'd actually see the names, not the SIDs ...
These are either users or groups that have been deleted, or objects from a trusted domain were the trust has been removed or the DC isn't accessible.

You can resolve SIDs to objects in Active Directory, but oBdA is right. The object has to exist. If you just see SIDs on a folder then the object has been deleted or the domain is unavailable.
