I purchased the latest MacBook Pro 17" in March 2012 in Australia.  Because of "screen issues" I had to take my computer back to the Apple Store where they reinstalled Lion OS 10.7.3.  Using Time Capsule I put retrieved all my information.  However, I have noticed that my home folder has my married name and I want it to show my maiden name as I am now divorced.  My account name is correct, it is just the home folder name....


Hope I am in the right discussion, if not please advise!


Kind regards,



MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
