law.dpl is on a distinguished road

Basically i created two user accounts on my macbook pro, one for family, one for work. i just installed microsoft office 2011 for mac and have just copied and transferred some files like music and documents from my old macbook and my old work pc onto my new macbook pro.
Now after various transferring between my accounts mainly to and from my work user account, my family user has been wiped clean, and when i open it, its asif i have just created an entirely new account.( luckily my photos are still on my old laptop ).

Also some of the word documents on i transferred onto my work account aren't working. when i try to open them they say "convert file from" a list of following options, first being MS-DOS text" which i choose them it opens a mostly blank document consisting of on line with words and squares?

Any advice.

Thanks in advance.
