If you have only one folder which begins with S-1-5 which ends with .bak extension. Rename that folder and remove only the extension i.e .bak and then enter.
If there is two or more folder with the S-1-5 name then rename the two folder. Rename the folder without .bak to .ba. And rename the .bak folder to same folder name but without .bak. The extension .ba is added to the one without .bak just to distinguish the two folder. Now further rename the folder with .ba to .bak.
Now click the folder without .bak in details pane and then double click Ref Count 0, type 0, and then press OK button.
