Is the data actually encrypted, as your subject line suggests? If so,
and if the your encryption certificates and keys were not backed up
before placing the hard drive in the new computer, and the workstation
isn't part of a domain, those files are gone, for all practical
purposes. Encryption works well and there is no "back door" or hack to
access the files. (Wouldn't be much point to EFS if it were vulnerable.)

If you hadn't actually encrypted the data files (and marking a folder
private is something completely different from encryption), you may be
facing nothing more than a simple permissions issue. Have you tried
taking ownership of the old folders?
