Have created a new account called Test. Transfered required folders and then renamed. The new name appears as a user but when I go into C:Documents and Settings it still appears as Test. I have tried to rename it but when I do the new account name disappears. Any thoughts?
This is because a user's area is protected by Windows.
From Microsoft's web site - Because it retains its security identifier (SID), a renamed user account retains all its other properties, such as its description, password, group memberships, user environment profile, account information, and any assigned permissions and rights. -
I think the easiest way is to start again with the account name that you want to use then transfer your files and folders into that.
