I have a user named Mary.  All of her data was in c:\windows\users\mary\ .  Somehow starting in October, all of data is in c:\windows\users\user .  The Mary folder is still there but with just a few files.  The username at login is still Mary and that is the only account.  

1 - How do I fix this?  Can I just copy the user folders under the mary folder?  Do I have to change any registry settings so my documents etc point in the right place?  Should I create another login MaryS and then just copy everything there?

2 - How did this happen?
