Previously Locked folder now crashing explorer

I had a folder that was set as private to prevent network sharing access. It's located on an internal hard drive other then my main C: partition. I re-formatted my C: and did a clean install of Windows 7 64bit. After words I tried access the same folder, and it said I didn't have permission but windows still gave me full access after it appeared to have indexed the folder. That was about a week ago. Now when I try to open a specific subfolder within, Windows explorer crashes. i really need the data out of it though. I dont see a way to alter the permissions now to revert them back. Any advice on how to proceed?

Try this and see if it helps.
Open Explorer and select "Tools" from the menu bar (if menu bar is not present, tap the Alt key on your keyboard to bring it up).
From the Tools menu select Folder Options and then the View tab.
Check the first box "Always show icons, never thumbnails" under the "Files and Folders" section and Click OK.
Now browse to your problem folder and see if opening it still crashes explorer.
