Recover EFS Encrypted Backup Files On Another Computer

I have a backup of my documents folder on an NTFS formatted usb drive.  It includes a folder encrypted with EFS.  I also have the encryption key backup file (.pfx) that Windows 7 told me to create.  I have installed the certificate file on another Windows 7 computer per instructions and added it into store.  When I put the usb drive in the new computer I can see all the files, but when trying to access the encrypted ones I get an "Access Denied" message.  How do I go about recovering the EFS files to the new computer?
