Hi,

I have just done a full backup to an external usb2.0 drive from my macbook using a registered version of SuperDuper! and then a full restore back to the macbook drive, to defrag.

But I seem to have less hard-disk space than I should and my /Users folder looks like this now;

sh-3.2# pwd
/Users
sh-3.2# ls -la
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 8 root admin 272 18 Jul 12:08 .
drwxrwxr-t 32 root admin 1156 18 Jul 05:05 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 31 May 2008 .localized
dr-x------ 3 paul staff 102 4 Dec 2008 .paul
drwxrwxrwt 8 root wheel 272 3 Jan 2009 Shared
drwx------+ 50 paul staff 1768 18 Jul 12:08 paul
drwx------+ 2 paul staff 68 17 Jul 18:07 paul 1
drwx------+ 5 paul staff 170 18 Jul 12:03 paul 2
sh-3.2#


Can you tell me why I have so many "paul" folders ? I am using FileVault. Can I safely remove any of these ?

Best regards,
Paul

As I replied to your emailed report, did you back up while logged into your FileVault account?
