Home folder
 
Can anyone tell me does it live in the appīs folder ? I was playing around and dragged my home folder to the right of the dock. Still playing around I dropped it into the application folder (I think cause itīs there nowI lost my grip while dragging it)

Can I delete it from the appīs folder without losing it totally ?
I still have it on my dock and sidebar in finder.

Should it be in the appīs folder anyway ?

I think you'll find it's just a shortcut not a 100% though, when you drag it back into the dock what does it do?

"Home" in which your referring to if not mistaken is stored on the Macintosh HD under Users.

Well appears after trying it myself, if you remove the Home Folder from it's "Home" in the Users section that folder is then Replaced with a New One.

So all the contents of the Home folder are then moved meaning that if you delete them you lose the copy. Hopefully you didn't Empty your Trash with the Correct Folder in it.

Just drag the correct home folder back to the Users folder and everything should be fine.
