    Last night I changed my home's name from "totoduong" to "Home" and it made seem like I lost everything.

    Currently "totoduong" has nothing, and "Home" has everything but in a folder.

    I checked another thread back in 2006, that said to change the name back to what it was. I am not clear how to do that in order to fix it.

    Here is a screen cap of the files and what not; maybe it will help?

    What should I do? I don't want to mess anything up... :confused:

    Go ahead and delete it, but leave it in the trash, then do a reboot, start a few apps and see if everything feels OK. If so, then empty the trash. That's my recommendation.
