Do you want to move this folder without encryption?

Yes


You'll need to provide administrator permission to move this file


continue


You require permission from Mehanicville/Mehanic to move this file

can't continue

Alright, do the following
Code:
icacls /t /c F: /setowner YourNewLaptopUserName
Where you would replace YourNewLaptopUserName with the username you are using on your new laptop.

Alright, looks like it is not going to be possible to apply permissions this way. Try another approach (it will be slower than copying normally, but should get the job done): Start an Elevated Command Prompt and do the following command:
Code:
robocopy /s /r:5 /w:0 /xo /xj /move F:\BackupMar12 C:\BackupMar12
If instead of the whole backup folder, you just want to move the Private folder:
Code:
robocopy /s /r:5 /w:0 /xo /xj /move F:\BackupMar12\Subdirectory1\Subdirectory2\Private C:\Private

that worked but didn't bring any of the subfolders

this is the subfolder names of BackupMar12:-


F: BackupMar12 - Pictures - Hello - Misc - Private


does this need to be included in the above to bring those other folders or even just the Private folder over?

Sorry, see my previous post. I forgot an important flag due to lack of sleep and it being late here.

You may need to use quotes: i.e.
Code:
robocopy /s /r:5 /w:0 /xo /xj /move "F:\BackupMar12\Subdirectory1\Subdirectory2\Private" "C:\Private"

It appears your old laptop had EFS encryption on the files... You will need to decrypt them on the old laptop and then move them on the new laptop.
