After using Migration Assistant to transfer files from PC to Mac, I can not find the files on my Mac?

Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

    If you used Migration Assistant to migrate after having begun to use the Mac (in contrast to using Setup Assistant to migrate the first time you start up the Mac), MA will create new user accounts and place the files in their home directories, according to what it found on the original computer.


    See the Users & Groups pane in System Preferences to discover what new user accounts were created and what names were used. I believe they will have the same passwords as on the PC. Or you can change the passwords in that preferences pane, if your current user account has Administrator privileges. Log into them and rediscover your files.

    And how can I get the stuff now from this account in to my account in Mac?
