Caution: Do not rename a user's home folder
Authored by: thirdrockphoto on Jul 23, '07 06:48:31PM

"Key thing here is to always have a backup account..."

Well, yeah, backup everything, of course. But the "account" is typically the largest folder on the computer. Mine is 16.8GB so it needs a dedicated second hard drive for the account backup.

The Windows switchers who think it is dumb to loose access to your account after the name is changed should realize it is part of UNIX security which is far better than Windows security.
