Accessing files on Terminal Server Roaming Profile

We need to edit a file located in the Application Data folder for all users on a citrix farm.  The terminal server has roaming profiles enabled by policy.  The administrator cannot access these files.  I know if I change the rights or take ownership it will create a new profile.  Is there any way to get to these files without causing the server to create a new profile?

Yes I've done that for any future profiles that get created but I was hoping there might be some way to get to the existing profiles and files without blowing them up.

You should be able to take ownership of the roaming profile's directory and give the user full control after and be safe. I have done it before, cant remember the exact steps I took, but I am pretty sure I just took owner ship.
