Moving folders in Finder without copying
Authored by: frank_martin on Aug 02, '10 12:51:39PM
The OP writes that they did an Archive and Install. That procedure preserves the home directory, so there would be no need to recover it from Time Machine or move it from anywhere.

Did you mean that you did an Erase and Install? But if you did that, there should be enough room to recover your home folder from Time Machine, since there would be no duplication (and nothing to move, just a copy via Time Machine).

Well you'd think it would. The folder was there but the account itself wasn't.
