Default Need access to restricted files

An accident in partition reworking cost me my boot partition recently, and the installation of Windows XP that I store my documents on was rendered unbootable. I created a new partition and installed another instance of XP on it (I'm planning on using the other one for Lycoris...or RH 9, haven't decided yet) and I got it running. The problem is, all my documents are "restricted", and I can't get all the vital work I have on the unbootable partition that is clearly there (the old drive 'c'), but inaccessable to me. Is there any freeware that will unlock it...or maybe some system file I can edit with resource hacker that would allow me to get my documents back? Thanks. I appreciate it.
