Manually backup and restore a User Home Folder
Authored by: poenn on Apr 05, '11 01:43:11PM

I usually do the backing up via System Preferences. Simply delete the account. You will get asked if you want to archive it in a disk image.

Again, using System Preferences to delete/archive the account does not preserve ACLs, permissions, ownership, etc..
