The alternative is to use WET, Windows Easy Transfer to transfer everything to the new account.
No, there is no prompting for the transfer.
Yes, you need to create a new account, but you will need to manually copy any information from the old to the new either by dragging and dropping, or more logically, using Windows Easy Transfer. The operation needs to be done from a third account so that neither the old nor the new is logged on during the copy operation. Then the old account and the 'extra' account used to do the copy can be deleted.
