XP Backup: Restore problem

I created an XP Pro Backup file and now need to recover. I have selected the 'My documents' folder and one other. The recovery appears to work in that a) time taken, b)activity shown in window c) no errors on report. The folders from 'My Docs' are shown in explorer but "Access is denied" and the files are not shown. Files recovered from the other folder are OK. I'm logged on with administrator rights. I suspect that XP thinks I'm trying to access someone elses files. How can I open them? The backup file was located on drive D: and I've recently rebuilt the machine on drive C: so its a new install. I am sure the user name is the same.

you have to back up from another source.

Put the back up files on to drive D (seperate hard drive)

In restore advanced there is a check box for copying security settings - this should be unchecked.
