Home Folder - Definition

A Home Folder is a folder (usually on a file server) that administrators can assign to individual users or groups. Administrators use home folders to consolidate user files onto specific file servers for easy backup. Home Folders are also used by some programs as the default folder for the Open and Save As dialog boxes. For instance, Microsoft Word will open and save its document files into the My Documents folder. Home Folders are sometimes referred to as default folders and also as home directories.
