    I am having problems with my user account, and I need to start fresh with a new account.

    My plan is to create a new user account and transfer my documents and images (but not my preferences) from my current account to that one.

    However, once I've migrated the data, I'd like to rename the new home folder with the same name as the old one to prevent any broken links from applications that will be looking for files in my old account.

    Is this possible? If so, how do I do it?
