I moved my Home folder to a separate partition called 'Data HD' and would like to move it back to /Macintosh HD.
One of the main reasons is that with the home folder in 'Data HD' some apps would treat it as '/Volumes/Data HD/Users/UserName'. The space character between Data and HD can sometimes cause issues. I've also encountered issues where 'Data HD' becomes 'Data HD 1' after a forced reboot.
I would like to ask about the best method to
- Backup existing items in '/Volumes/Data HD'
- Repartition the hard drive so there's only one single partition left
- Copy '/Volumes/Data HD/Users' back into 'Macintosh HD'
If I need to do this via single-user mode, what are the proper commands?
I'm running OS X Mavericks. Currently, there's a symlink on 'Macintosh HD' pointing to /Users on 'Data HD'.
