Hi,

 

I would like to change the account name of the main user (it currently has the generic name "admin") according to Apple's instructions.

I was wondering though if and how this will affect Time Machine. The full name (editable via the user & login system prefs) will remain the same, as well as the computer name in the Sharing prefs.

 

Will TM create a new backup folder instead of continuing the existing backup?

 

Thanks
