Avoid using Snow Leopard Guest Account, unless you want to loose your home.

October 13th, 2009

Dude wheres my data? Well chances are you’ve logged into a Guest account on your shiny new Snow Leopard (the world’s most advanced operating system!).

As a confused veteran of the Mac informs us:

Ok accidentally clicked on “guest account” to log into my mac…was taking a while to log in so i walked away, came back a minute later and i was greeted with my normal login list again, my usual acc, and the guest user, this time i clicked on the correct one and when it started up i now have a VERY simple desktop, std snow leopard desktop (not my normal desktop pic) and cant see any HD.

Ive been using macs for decades.. what the heck have i done here? repeated restarts and logins never get me back to me usual user acc?… errrm panic kicking in

They should have a feature listing for that, finely tuned operating system level porn mode! Maybe for iSkeet Leopard 2.0!

But in all seriousness you should disable your guest account, its not worth loosing your /home over. Hopefully you’ve kept backups to revert to. QA much?
