10.5: Easily change the location of your home directory
Authored by: makh on Jul 22, '08 08:39:34AM

Can this procedure be adopted with a damaged drive?
Let me explain, my drive packed up and will not boot.
I could see it and all its content via Firewire boot.
Before reformatting, installing then transferring new home folder to a different volume, can I use the same ditto command? or would it need a different coomand?

More importantly can I restore my home folder from that copy?
