Windows 7: Is it possible to combine these accounts?

Is it possible to combine these accounts?

I've had the seemingly common issue with the last user and the 'other user' showing on the login screen, and once I finally dealt with it (well sort of, but that's another post for another time), I was back onto the standard user account I was missing, and was happy to be back with my old files. When I was dealing with that whole login issue I had been using a new account I set up that would work for the time being. Once I got this account back, I deleted that old account but chose "save files" (or some phrase along those lines) and assumed they'd be under the account 'Administrator'. But I looked on my files logged into Admin and in that folder, nothing is there.

So then, I typed in C:\Users\ in the start bar and found a list of ten or so accounts I managed to angrily make and use and not use in the last few months. All of them, one or two more than the others, have files I need. My question is this: Is there anyway to "combine" all the files from these accounts, since they seem to still exist although the accounts don't since I click on them from the list and up come the files, and have them on this account I'm logged into that I've gained back???

And I do not mean having the files "shared"....

Sorry for all the talking, it just seemed like on these forums as much info as possible is always good....

Just move (or copy) the files from where there are now to the account you are using. Once you have everything you want, delete the ones you don't want.
