http://i486.net – In Linux or any other UNIX-based operating system, the home directory is special file system directory that stores personal data of a particular user. Only the given user has authorization to access home directory. Using home directory, you can separate the user data from system data. It avoids the redundancy of data and makes the backup process relatively simple. It also makes your data secure from the viruses and other malicious programs in other directories. In Linux computer, user’s home directory holds all the documents, files, graphics and personal data. The user could also keep added software that might not have installed on system as a whole. The home directory can be organized with the help of sub-folders, at user’s preference. The data stored in home directory is confidential and if user wants, it could be shared with other users. In this way, you can see the importance of home directory.
