View Full Version : Change location default home directory

Oct 11, 2012, 08:38 AM

In 10.8 you're able to change the location of your home directory. You can do this in System Preferences - Accounts - Right click your account - advanced. Here I can change my homefolder to a different partition.

This is all clear to me but if I login as a new (AD) user (or create a new local user) OSX creates a new user in the default user directory.

What I want is that OSX automatically creates any new user on the other partition.

Is this possible? Is this maybe a setting in some .plist file?

One does not simply
Change a .plist file

You could create a script that copies the directory over and creates a symlink in the current /Users.
