Transfering user account to another user account on same computer

Using Vista. My accounting program crashed recently. Managed to restart by
adding lost file but only as a new user. I now want to transfer all my
email, onenote and other files to this new user account. Any ideas?

Re: Transfering user account to another user account on same computer

Copy a user account to another with Windows Easy Transfer - from MVP
Jimmy Brush

"Simply pretend that your administrator account is the "old computer"
and your new user account is the "new computer". Also, make sure you
manually specify what files to transfer, and only select the files under
the admin user profile - you obviously don't need to transfer files that
are outside of the admin user profile, since they will be staying the same."

I assume that when Mr. Brush says "administrator account" you could
substitute "my old user account" for this. I copied his reply to a
poster and they may have been using that term in the thread.

Caveat - I haven't tried this and I don't know if it would get the
email. Copying a user account in XP didn't get the email and I don't
know if the same applies in Vista.

Re: Transfering user account to another user account on same compu

clarification: we are setting up a new computer and my husband set up his
user account and successfully got my email account from our old computer
(outlook express) onto this new computer. (old address book and all!) I
have set myself up as another user on this new computer and would like to get
my email off his profile and onto mine. when i try to set up a new account
it works, but it doesnt bring up my old emails, addresses ect.
