There never was a Mac Pro until 2006, the 1,1 model, and that will only run up to Lion.
There should be /Users on your boot drive, but not on the #3 drive.
is all you have to and want to have, as you are not moving "/Users" normally
In fact I find it best to leave a small default account over on the boot drive just in case and so you can use it plus the
~/Library of your home account gets a lot of I/O activity and does best usually when left on an SSD boot drive - otherwise copy it over.
Accounts / Advanced Options / - your path to home should be there with volume3/.... in there correctly

hi grant, hatter.
thanks so much. i see i mis-spoke and this is in fact a 2006 model.
i have always had uber hairy issues with MobileMe and now i am going through a torturous set of problem solving steps with mac advanced tech and the iCloud developers related to Contact sync problems. I have also noticed my Notes (also synced via iCloud) were trashed so i had to recover them from Time Machine and restore them and move them to a new software.
I also happen to notice that my USER ICON when i do an option boot seems to drop off periodically from time to time so that i only see the blank default person here instead of my chosen image.
lastly, i tried to do some kind of force restart (CMD key i think) which did not complete despite attempting it two times with mac techs. /anyway/ - the image below shows that my HOME FOLDER in bay 3 is also accompanied by a folder with the name of the HARD DRIVE that this folder resides in (the Bay 3 HD name). you can see that the down arrow shows that there is no data in here. if i delete it it comes back.
i am also including a screenshot of the contents of the home folder on the "OS DRIVE" in bay 1.
both of these get cloned daily to /internal/ drives in bay 2 (bay 1 is cloned to this) and in bay 4 (bay 3 is cloned to this). then i run external HD backups and time machine backups.
i think i did the pointing of the home folder correctly when i moved all the data over to the new drive...
