    Problem changing home folder username in Macbook Pro

    I got a second hand Macbook Pro from my friend and now the home folder had his username so I tried changing the folder from terminal with move (mv) command but now I am not able to see any pic or music in the respective folders. Why is that? What is the issue? How to resolve it now? Please help.

    Make sure that ---->
    * Folder file is not corrupted.
    * You can re boot your device to recheck.
    * This may solve your problem .

    ** Delete such folder which has such errors.
    ** Also have a antivirus in mac for security.
    ** Secure your device every time and then create a folder.
