I have a Macbook Pro that will not boot up, and I would like to grab files from the disk before re-installing. I have successfully booted up macOS on the laptop via an external hard drive, and I can view the Applications, Library, and System folders in Macintosh HD. However, there is no User folder. Where can I find the User folder so I can retrieve my files?

  • It should be right there, and named "Users". If it's not there, then I don't know what might've happened to it. All I can really suggest is searching for it (or the folder named with the user's account name).. – Gordon Davisson Oct 15 '17 at 2:08
