As an administrator, if you've not encrypted it (important!), then you should be able to right-click, select the security tab and "take ownership".

If you've encrypted it, it depends how well you reinstalled windows. If you formatted the disk, there is no known recovery if you don't have the encryption key backed up.

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
