I was trying to change to the name of the home folder on a work computer to reflect a personnel change, by logging in as root and renaming the folder. Instead of the intended result, I found a new account created with the new folder name, but the home folder for this account still has the old name. The files from this folder now occupy a folder with the new folder name, but which has no account attached to it, so that I can only access the files from the root account. Is there any way to restore the old account's files and settings so that I can access them as before? Or should I just copy the old home folder over to the new account?
