When deleting a local user account, what three options does the User & Groups preference give you for dealing with the user’s home folder content?
When deleting a local user account OS X can:
- Archive the home folder content into a compressed disk image,
- Leave the home folder content in the /Users folder, or
- Delete the home folder content
Optionally, OS X can perform a secure erase on the home folder content.
How do you make OS X associate a new local user account with a manually migrated or restored user’s home folder?
Before the local user account is created on a system, you must first copy the restored user’s home folder to the /Users folder.
Then once you create the new user in the Users & Groups preference with the same account name, the system will prompt you to associate the new account with the restored home folder.
