I can only put this in an example:
Imagine that every user is an upside-down cup, and under those cups is the users' files. And what your trying to say is that the only thing that is being moved is the cu;: Lifting a cup one set of files and putting on a new cup? Is that what your trying to say? Kind of...
Your analogy is a good one.
Here is what I did on my test box:
Go to "User Accounts" in Control Panel
Clicked on "Manage another account"
"Create a new account" (You might need two new Administrator accounts. The new account you want to keep, and one to use to copy the files between the other two. You can't copy files that are in use!)
Create the Administrator account with the name you want to use. (You will have to rename the original account to free up the name you chose to use.)
Login to the new user account.
Then logout, and login to the neutral Administrator account. Use the Organize, Folder Options to show hidden files and untic "Hide protected files".
When you click on the user account folders, you will have to get permission to access them. Just click continue.
Highlight and copy the files here:
And paste them in the new user account you want to keep.
This is a slow machine ... 30 GB took about 30 minutes. Very little interaction, had to tell Windows to go ahead a couple of times. Not tedious at all, if you ask me.
