I got a new laptop for my birthday (woo hoo!!!) & have been trying to transfer data from my old laptop running XP to my new laptop with Vista. I worked & worked to get the Easy Transfer to work and I could never get it to work (most inappropriately named!!), so I said, aha, I have Carbonite, I'll just transfer using my Carbonite restore, since that backs up all of my important things. Well, two longggggg days later, the restore is finally done and what do I find but all of my files, etc. are not under any of the user accounts that I can select when I log in. After a major panic, I did find the files - have to go under C drive, then All Users, then under my name. For some reason, even though I told Carbonite where to put the files, it did not. None of my files are under any of the user accounts that show up when I log in. I tried making a new account using the name in my files and that didn't work. Is it possible to merge 2 user accounts into one and if so, how do I do it? Or is there some other way to fix this? I don't know if I explained it very well. Sorry! I just want to get this up & running so I can go back to scrapping again - arrgghhhh!!!
