Hi all,


I have a funny situation...I have a duplicate user account on my macbook pro.  Never been a problem until now, when it is telling me that I'm out of space to upload photos. 


Can I simply delete this account?  It hasn't been opened since I upgraded my computer from a 15.4 macbook pro to the current MacBook pro 13.3. 


If I think back all those years, I had a failing drive on my old 15.4, and it might have partially copied the user account.  Most of it actually, and I shoved everything into a file and copied it manually.


Ideas?  That won't take 7 years to go back through.  I just did a bit of poking around, and the dupes were by the dozens!  Some old files untouched since 2006!  LOL


Thanks for any help!



MacBook Pro 13.3, MacBook Pro 15.4, 10 macs too numerous to mention!
