Seem to have deleted my home folder
Hi, I was having a couple of glitches with Ubuntu, and since my home folder was mounted on a separate partition I thought the quickest way to sort it out was to reinstall.
Everything went smoothly, except because I changed my username from "james" to "jam", my Documents, Pictures etc. were not where they should be. Instead there were two folders in the /home directory, named james and jam.
I thought the solution was simple, so I ran
sudo mv james jam
Which promptly removed my folder named james, but the jam was still empty. I don't know what happened!
Any help appreciated.
