    Hey guys. I recently copied my home directory and created a new user to match the copy. Cuz I wanna create a new directory name and username . Only one problem. All my files are giving permission to my OLD username. How can I fix this?

    No.
    Step [​IMG] explains you can do that to an entire folder with its subfolders and files.

    You can set permissions on the parent folder, and have it propagate to child folders too.
