Need help with Windows 8 User profiles

I have a friend with a new Windows 8 laptop and when he set it up he created a local account and an online Microsoft account. After running Windows easy transfer and getting his desktop setup the way he wanted he decided to create a different Microsoft account at Outlook.com.

The local account profile and the first Microsoft account seem to be sharing the same "profile" as the desktop, documents, pictures, music etc are available on both logins.

The problem now is when he logs in using the new Microsoft account none of the profile info is available. No pictures, music, documents and a new desktop.

When I look at advanced user settings the only "prifle" that shows in the list is the local user account.

My question is how can I copy that user prfile to the new Microsoft user so we can remove the old Microsoft user?

I hope my explanation makes sense.

Thank you.
