Forget about sids. Guess your backup did not include system state or when you restored everthing would have been the same as when backed up. Logon as administrator and take ownership of the files so you can then access them.

google taking ownership of files for the how to

There is no utility I know of changing the user sid or guid that I am aware of.

There is no reason to do so if you follow standard operating procedures.

No backup/system state is not following SOP.
