Where do user files go when you delete an XP account?

    I deleted a user account from my XP Pro box, and it asks if you want to keep
    the files or delete them. I chose to keep them, but now can't find them.
    There is no directory for that user under the documents and settings folder
    any longer... are they put into a backup area somewhere? Is there another
    way to restore them?
    Please help!

    Your question is not really related to the topic of this group but is more a
    general XP question, a better place for your post would be xp.general, but
    to answer your question, I believe the files are placed in a folder on the
    desktop of the account you were logged in with when you deleted the user
