Rescue Files Issue - "Access Denied" for App Data

Hello - just joined and have had a Lenovo T500 running Windows 7 for less than a year. 


Currently, I am attempting to rescue all of my files through the Rescue and Recovery space that I access through pressing F11 during startup.  My computer will not startup due to a potential hardware issue (another issue entirely), so Rescue and Recovery is the only screen I am able to access, other than BIOS screen.  I have attached a external HDD via USB to my Lenovo to "rescue" all of my files and data.  When copying all of the C drive over, I continually get an error message of "access denied" for "App Data" under my user profile (password protected user account). 


Is there a way through Rescue and Recovery to rescue App Data under my user profile even if it is password protected? 


I plan to do a system restore once all files/data is copied to address the other issue I am encountering, which is most likely a hardware issue.


Thanks for the help!
