Recreated User folder - permissions

    Recreated User folder - permissions

    Created another admin account 'Dave', then deleted my Mac20 original account. Recreated Mac20 using outlook but when I go in \Users I still see the original Mac20 folder (with only 2 objects) and the new one called Mac20.DESKTOP-34C11S0. This will allow me to move the 'objects' inside the new Mac20 user folder to my Data drive.

    All but Public have full admin rights, yet when I click on properties tab of Dave user folder it tells me 'you must have Read permissions' & click Advanced security settings.

    Can I delete the old Mac20 user folder? Should I give Read rights to folder for user Dave? Is the reference to username (DESKTOP-34C11S0\Dave) or similar for the new Mac20 anything worth worrying about?

    Thank you.

    OK so answer this: when I log in as Dave and try to delete user Mac20, in order to recreate it, why does W10 keep telling me Mac20 is logged in when that isn't true? Can I just delete the C:\User\Mac20 folder?
