    Hi:

    I had to wipe my drive and reinstall... but I made a good back up. Now my wife wants her old icon image back... anyone know where the image for the user icon is?

    Thanks!

    Yes. As long as you did a backup of the entire filesystem, you should be OK.

    It should be contained in the /Library/Caches directory. There will be a number of files located here, but if you have icon previews on, you should see its preview immediately. As an example mine is located here:

    /Library/Caches/com.apple.user501pictureCache.tiff
