If you create a new user, you cannot create one that already exists, and Windows would not put the user in another users folders such as you indicate.
I believe you copied your user folders into the subfolder.
To avoid deleting the wrong thing, make a new user account, and copy all your current info to it, and then delete the screwed up one.
This should clear up the mess.
Some how I have created too many identities in my C:\Docs & Settings folder.
One I created at 5:00 the path is C:\Documents and Settings\John Doe the other at 8:00 is C:\docs and settings\John Doe\2Does. This is for the same person with different subfolderes. They both have cookies, favorites, my docs, user data. One of them has application data and templates. the other, start menu and desktop. This could get confusing later on. I would like to merge these two folders as they are for the same person. There are three other identities but they are OK. What would be the best and safest way to combine these identies. Thank you for any help.
