    Seeking a little advice due to my being a little silly.

    Moved my Home Directory over to my Opti-Bay Drive, changed the path in Accounts etc and then restarted. When trying to log back in to my system I get the following message:

    You are unable to log in to the user account "XXXX" at this time.

    Why Silly? Just before I moved my Home Directory over I had formatted the new drive as Encrypted. Am guessing that this is stopping me from logging in?

    So how can I go about resolving this issue?

    Many thanks in advance for any help! :)

    Managed to resolve the issue.

    Ripped the drive with my Home Directory out of my MBP and connected it to another MBP as an external USB drive. Copied off my Directory and then formatted said drive as just Journaled. Installed back in to main MBP and all works :)
