Manually backup and restore a User Home Folder

Using rsync will also make it a recursive backup which is both faster and more practical than using Disk Utility. The downside is that it force you to the CLI.

Aaaah, but the CLI is a haven of refuge in troubled and unstable gooey times. It is predictable, it is always your friend.

The CLI doesn't care if you see other shells, or even have a beer after severely misusing it.

*cough*
