    For some reason when I setup my new 15" MBPr my home folder name is "Todd1" but not sure where the "1" came from.

    Is there a way to change it? Where would I do this?

    Did you use Migration Assistant, if that is the case then that is the reason, I had this too, the User I created on my new Mini had exactly the same User name, seems like there is a conflict and it creates a Home Folder with the 1.

    Got rid of it by copying it all back and changing permissions, not an easy task if you don't know how.
