You would have to know how it was encrypted at least, and then find some program that can brute force it. It might be doable if you want to put the time into it. Could take 1000's of hours 24x7 to crack it depending.... That's why the government has supercomputers.

It's not encrypted. The folder was made private. Boot into Safe Mode and you'll be able to take ownership of the folder.
