    Hello friend,

    I would like to say you that Admin user has all the rights to moves the files from one account to another account.The normal users cannot perform such actions.
    so, log in in the account of the admin user and perform you tasks to do so.If you keep the old account files as public they may also be accessed by the new account


    hope you found the information useful

    thank you
