I had trouble with MS Office for Mac 2007 - specifically could no longer create or edit Word docs.  A solution I found on the boards (when uninstall/re-install didn't work) was to create a new user account.  I did this and MS Word works fine.  So if I copy files from my old user account to my new user account - am i creating duplicate files taking up double the space?  The solution made it clear to Copy not Move - but no explanation as to why.  Can you advise? Thx.

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
