What flavor of XP?

have you tried one of the Live-CDs like Ubantu Live-CD. It will allow you to run Linux of the CD and should give you access to the folder. you can copy the content to a USB flash drive.

Sorry never used ERD.

Isn't there a way to take ownership of the folder and sub-folders as an Administrator in Save Mode?
