    i was just running disk warrior and saved one of the reports to the "Root" folder (the one w/the little house icon). when i restarted the computer from its own drive, i went to look for the root folder so i could find the report. can't find a Root folder anywhere. however, there IS an icon w/the little house that has my name under it. i opened that, but the report was not there. suggestions?

    That folder with the house icon is your home or user folder, not the root of the volume, which is the first level of that volume.

    On most Macs that means to get to it just double-click the hard drive icon. Or in the Finder choose Go>Computer and then double-click the name of your hard drive.

    "Root" describes where the folder/directory is; "Root" is not actually the name of a folder. It's describing the directory that includes all over directories.
