    If you’ve accidentally synced a Microsoft Account over the top of an old Local Account, how do you restore all the previous Local Account settings? When I switched to the local account, it has left all of the personalised settings from the other Microsoft Account…?

    In Windows 8.1 if the admin account is a Microsoft account are all other account files encrypted; even if they are local accounts?

    In this article you fail to make clear the distinction between “Switching to a local account” and “Making a local account the login account”. You can add accounts and “Switch” between them without changing the login account.
