    Salvatore;
    Are you sure it is not an Ownership issue:

    If the files are encrypted.
    If you did not back-up the encryption key or the Recovery Agent and
    are not on a domain, the files are as good as gone.
    This must be accomplished while you have access to the files.
    If you have not already done so, it is now to late.

    If you can restore the original profile (not recreate) you may be able
    to recover the data.
    Recreating profiles and passwords is irrelevant.
    Contact Microsoft if you can restore the profile.
    Or:

    EFS is very good at what it does and there is no back door.
    Read and understand these links before using EFS to keep from
    permanently losing your data:
