Regaining access to my local folder

    I am running Windows XP Professional.

    I recently reformatted my computer. After I formatted, I choose a user name, but later renamed it using computer management. However, for some reason, the system did not decide to transfer my documents and settings over to this rename. I was under the impression that it would automatically change everything over. It did not. I go into the properties of my documents and settings folder, and then the security tab and sure enough, it says I am the owner of the object...

    How can I go about making the old name's personal information mine again? Thanks.
