Duplicate user files

I am trying to clear out a stuffed hard drive - only 21% free space. I am using Windows XP Pro which was installed over XP Home. In Documents and Settings I have several instances of usernames e.g. myname and myname-and-surname My name.WINDOWS. The .WINDOWS username appeared after XP Pro was installed. The old folders contain all the user settings such as start menu and application data, but no My Documents folder. How can I get rid of these extra folders. I have tried removing users via the control panel but the old users are not listed there.
