    I currently authenticate against a Windows AD server but I am now thinking of removing the Mac from the Windows domain.

    I know how to do it but the question is... Will I lose all my files and settings because my login was tied to a Windows domain? IE will it give me a new home directory (which is what Windows does)?

    Depends. Did you keep your Home folder on the server?

    No the home folder is local.

    Ok. Now is this your personal mac or is it a company Mac?

    If this is a personal Mac go into System Preferences->Network pane, and disconnect from the Domain.
