Recovering user post sysprep

I done a sysprep due to changing motherboard, and now my user "fabricio" has another user inside called "fabricio.fabricio-pc" Windows is logging from the latter, which doesn't have my documents, settings.

On Account settings i only see 1 profile. How do i get my old one with it's settings back?

Boa tarde Fabrício,
- Back up your files at \users\Fabrício

- Reboot and log in as Provisorio.
- Open Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Folder Options
- View tab - Set show hidden files & unset Hide protected OS Files.
- Rename \users\Fabricio to \users\Fab.
- Delete account (by control panel - User accounts - delete) Fabricio (\users\Fabricio.Fabricio-Pc)
- Reboot and log in as Provisorio.
- Create a new user (by control panel - User accounts - create) Fabricio with admin rights.
