Try opening windows 7 and then transferring from W7 To W8.

You need to do one of the following:

1. Take ownership of the folder and files inside them on the Windows 8 machine.
2. Give permissions to everyone on the folder from within Windows 7.

You can then do this by going to into the properties of the folder and then selecting the security tab.
