    By mistake, I now have two Minecraft accounts, backed by the same Micosoft account behind it


    I have an old account Mr Sumleren X Box name: im_dr_rediation.Yesterday by mistake, I created a new account, named Dr Rediation.Both accounts are backend by the same Microsoft Account, so when I try to login to ether of my Minecraft accounts, I get to the new one Dr Rediation, not the old one, in which I have purchased Minecraft. In the new one, I have not purchased Minecraft, so I can no longer play Minecraft.I can see, that there are many forum posts in which you are stating that you cannot have two Microsoft accounts with the same email, while that may verey well be true, I can not access

    Strange Windows 10 User Account issue.

    Unfortunately I had done those steps numerous reboots, it just, reappears for no good reason. The base account isn't even a Microsoft account, it's a local account.

    I haven't quite tried the built in administrator account on W10, but so far in my experience on my own computer, the built in account seemed to have absolutely no more control than I did on my own.

    It's just strange, I go in, it warns me twice about deleting the account, then it's gone. Reboot, and it's back?

    EDIT: Just to specify, both command line and Netplwiz both say only HIS account exists on the computer, it doesn't list this rogue account. This is what I meant in my first post about the fact that even Windows doesn't seem to believe it exists, HALF the time. *Frown By mistake, I now have two Minecraft accounts, backed by the same Micosoft account behind it :(
