Hi all. I bought a new MacBook Pro and I migrated my data with the Migration Assistant. Everything worked quite well expect that my new user folder was not named "dome" but "dome 1", which really annoyed me. So I followed the following steps to rename my user folder back to "dome": http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1428 After that I also repaired the permissions in Disk Utility. When I logged in to my account the first thing I've noticed is that Dropbox did not work anymore. Dropbox still "thought" that the old path "/dome 1/DropBox" instead of "/dome/DropBox" was still the right one. I could fix this problem by deleting all dropbox files, including the ones which cannot be found so easy (hidden folders in user folder etc.). Well now I actually think that if Dropbox has issues with new paths, other applications might have some problems as well. Doing some Google research I found out that most people do not recommend to change the name of the user folder at all. Fortunately I have a Time Machine Backup with all my important data so I am now thinking about migrating data to a very new user again. This on the other hand would be pain in the a**, because of all the applications that need to be reactivated like Microsoft Office etc. What would you recommend? Use the computer as it is or create an all new user account? What other common issues can be witnessed after renaming the user folder? Is it possible that Dropbox is the only app that has problems with that? I'd love to hear what you guys would do in this situation. I somehow have a bad feeling right now.
