For some reason I have 2 user accounts and both have different things in them. What could be in one users documents won't be in the other users documents. How do I make it so there is only one user with all the documents, pictures. etc. on the pc? I have no idea why this happened but there has to be a fix other than wiping the drive and reinstalling. Please help!

copy the contents of the other user's documents/etc directories into the more current one then delete the old profile?

It wouldn't let me, so I got mad and wiped my drive and reinstalled because I think it had to do with how I created my MS account before.

This was a very simple issue to resolve. Setting permissions on the folders and then copying would have worked.
