an we re-open an encrypted file after pc got formatted. We have formatted the pc, later system wont allow to open any file showing "access denied", when we check that all files was encrypted by earlier user, now whether we can retrive all these encrypted files through administrator login because present system won't allow for administrator user also.

Hello Pva,
if you cannot access the file even if you are using the Administrator account this means that you need to become owner of th file itself.
To do this right click the file/properties/security/owner and change the ownership of the file.
Anyway if the file is encrypted you will also need to have the decryption keys to read it.
Bye
