Windows 7: How do I map existing User Folders to new User Account?

How do I map existing User Folders to a newly created User Account?

I had existing User Folders on drive D. I added a new drive C and installed the OS on C but changed default location of User Folders to D. Now my existing User Folders are in the Users folder on D but there is no User Account associated with them. If I create a user account with the same name will it map to the existing folder within Users?

I did a test of this. I created a folder called Test within Users then created a User account called Test and logged in. It created another folder within Users called Test.Computername.

Use Windows Easy Transfer...it's simple, just pretend the "old computer" is the user you are moving and the "new computer" is where it's going.
