Trying to copy from XP NTFS file system to 7 NTFS file system

Trying to copy from XP NTFS file system to 7 NTFS file system

Recently I've installed Windows 7. I was used to use XP before. While trying to copy Firefox profile from XP's NTFS drive (D:\Documents and Settings\[UserName]\Application Data\Mozilla) to 7's NTFS drive (C:\Users\[UserName]\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla), Windows 7 tells that I need to provide administrator permission to copy those files. My Windows 7 account already has admin permissions, as this is the only account (am I correct?). But still I cannot copy. How can I copy files from old system drive?

"here is an illustrated tutorial:

How to Take Ownership & Grant Permissions to Access Files & Folder in Windows 7

if you frequently have to 'take ownership', i recommend to add this feature to your context menu:
