    I fried my hard drive and got a new one. I used my Windows XP Pro disk to reinstall windows. I must have used my name Sue Johnson for the Administrator with no password. I did not create any other accounts. When I looked at the directory under Documents & Settings it had All Users, Default User and Sue Johnson. I changed the Administrator name to User, but that did not change the the directory list. I still had Sue Johnson. I use Second Copy to backup my data and I want to restore it to my c drive but it uses User, not Sue Johnson. When I try to rename the Sue Johnson folder, it says "Sue Johnson is a Windows system folder and is required for windows to run properly. It cannot be moved nor renamed." Is there any way to fix this or do I have to do a complete re-install?
