guest account migration

Hello,
When i first setup Win 7 pro 64 bit,i activated the guest account for my wife and daughter to use
but now i want them both to have some privileges
Files such as music,photos.
Is there an easy way of doing this?

Create a regular user account for each of them, and then use gpedit.msc to assign what privileges that each of them have.

Sorry i should have explained my intention a little clearer.
I already have there regular accounts set up ,now what i want to do is transfer what they have saved in the guest account such as music,video and pics to there regular accounts.
If i try to copy and paste onto a usb stick,i get an unauthorized message.

This would be dealt with by changing the permissions of the files. Use Take Ownership to do this.

EDIT: I should have said to use Take Ownership to change the owner, then change the permissions of the folder containing the files, and set it to do the same with the files that it contains.

you should be able to access files in the guest acct from any administrator account without having to run the take ownership script
