Hi everyone, I am in deep troubles now!!! I renamed my home directory without entering my password (authentication) (The orignal account name is "raymond huang" and "RLH" as the short name. I changed it to "..." and "RLH" is still the same b/c i can't change it.) Then I restarted my computer, and my home directory contents and preferences appear to be lost! And my home directory subfolders (Documents, Pictures, and so forth) are empty! I tried to follow the apple/support online but didn't find it is helpful to me. APPLE/SUPPORT: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=107854 On the apple/support, it says to check if the missing home directory is present or not. But how do i know WHAT home directory looks like and if it is present or not? Also, I don't see "new home directory" in the "Users" folder as described in step 2. All i see is 13 folders, 12 folders are RLH, RLH 1, RLH2, RLH 3,.....RLH11 (b/c I restarted and loged out for 12 times), Folder "RLH11" is the icon of a House. The last folder is "Shared", which has a subfolder "GarageBand Demo Songs". all my files are on the HD but i can't access! Please help me out! I have projects saved and they are due on Friday!!! Thanks a lot!!!!!!!
