So heres the deal. A friend of mine wanted to lock one file (the contents of the file I didn't care to know ) and thought that that is what file vault is used for. Instead he locked his computer down and really doesn't want a password on it if he's the only user. The only way I know how to get rid of this is to create a new user account and delete the old one. I guess my question is 1) Am I mistaken in thinking you cant turn off the master password to access that particular users account. and 2) What is the easiest way to copy all his files to a new userid. I have never done this before but know there are a number of differnet ways. I'm just looking for the easiest and most effeciant. He is mostly concerned about losing his iTunes tracks and star ratings. But his school files and settings are important to.
