Chapter 16. Setting Up Accounts and Main... > Managing Files with the Home Folder

Managing Files with the Home Folder

In a further attempt to organize, as well as secure your computer, each user account is assigned a Home folder. The Home folder is where all your account stuff is stored. That means all of your files, images; anything that you've created within your personal account, is stored in this folder. When users sign on to their accounts, they have the ability to add or delete files to their Home folder; however, they cannot access the Home folder of any other user, and they cannot add folders or delete files from any place else but their own Home folder. This gives you a tremendous degree of control over users, and prevents them from accidentally (or purposely) deleting or reading sensitive data. For example, users cannot create folders on the main hard drive, nor can they delete applications from the Applications folder. The other areas of the computer are effectively locked out.
