Create a Users partition for your Home directory
Authored by: mbotta on Aug 31, '03 05:25:52AM

Nice hint, worked as explained.

However, now that I have my Users directory on a separate partition, all folders are visible to anybody using the system.

On a virgin OSX, folders in a home directory get those little red badges on the folder icons to indicate you have no access. When you click on them, you have indeed no visibility (except for the Public folder with Read Only, and the underlying Drop Box with Write Only).

All of this functionality got lost when I moved the Users directory to a separate partition following the original hint.

Any ideas on how to get this back?

Chances are you have the 'Ignore ownership on this volume' flag in the Volume:Get info box checked. Uncheck it and your ownership/permissions should return to normal.
I use the symlink method on the office network and everything works as it should.
