MySQL Restore - Error

I'm trying to move my database to a new server by using Backup and Restore from MySQL Administrator. When I start the Restore I get this:

Error while executing this query:CREATE DATABASE /*!32312 IF NOT EXISTS*/ information_schema;
The server has returned this error message:Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' to database 'information_schema'
MySQL Error.

I've tried from other utilities as well. I can make the Restore run by checking Ignore Errors, but I'm afraid it's incomplete.

The problem is your use you're running this restore as doesn't have access.

Did you selected all the databases from the old mysql server to backup?
Don't do that, select just what you need!

The information_schema system database is not needed as is created on the fly
when you create the other databases.
