Installed upgrade from 10.1 CE to 10.1 Official via urpmi, all went smoothly. On reboot i lost my user home directory, which I was expecting as I have read a post with similar outcome. Removed original user and recreated account. Computer now works fine, but I have lost all my original settings, which I re-entered. Question is, I had Photos and MP3s in home directory of original user which are'nt there anymore, no problem as I can reload from CD backup. But here's the funny thing, if I run "locate *.mp3" or "locate *.jpg in a terminal, it comes back with a list of MP3 or JPG directories in my Home directory which simply are'nt there, where is it getting it's information from. Also running kdiskfree seems to show they are still there but can't see them in Konqueror? Do I need to remount these directories, or somehow incorporate them into the directory structure, but they are there according to "locate".
