    So you need to transfer the data from there to the new User Account to have it.

    If the Old User Account has been deleted you need to go to the Data Backup and recover your Data from there.

    If you do not have a Backup you can remove the HDD send it to a Specialist Data Recovery Center and pay them to recover your data. Of course it's going to take time and you'll need another HDD in your current computer loaded with everything so you can continue working.

    If this is a Companies Computer contact your IT Department to see what if anything they can do to recover your data. Also if it's a Business System you need to understand that messing with it may result in your termination so it's best to let the IT Department fix the problem.

    This problem seems pretty simple to resolve unless you actually formatted and reloaded the HDD. My impression is that you didnt. When you create user accounts it creates respective folders in the "Users" folder which contains directories which correspond to the each user. Assuming that the name of your new account is different from the old one then look for the directory with that name (dir should have the same name as the login name). Then you browse to the desktop folder where you should see the work placed on the desktop of the user that you logged in.
