Exception after moving ProgramData (1 Viewer)

Because the ProgramData folder of MediaPortal was very big, I robocopied the files from C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal to D:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal (with file permissions copied over). Thereafter I made a symbolic link (Directory Junction) from the folder on C to the folder on D. Now when I startup MediaPortal it hangs at the full screen loadingscreen.

I opened MediaPortal with the Watchdog. In the MediaPortal.log file there was the following exception (description is in Dutch):
2012-12-14 11:12:37.401145 [Info.][MPMain(1)]: Exception  :System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Toegang tot het pad C:\ProgramData\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\IncompatiblePlugins.xml is geweigerd.

When I start MediaPortal as Administrator it runs normal.

What's happening here? How can I start MediaPortal as a normal user again?
