create first a user with admin privileges you will use for moving (maybe
called move)...then move the contents of the old folder to the new folder.
you can't use either of the two users because windows would be opening some
hidden files in the current user folder...and you can't copy nor over-write
such hidden files.
the delete the move user you have created above.
| It should automatically create the new folder for you with the new name.
| Then you can just go to the old My Documents folder and copy all of your
| files over to the new user folder.
