When several people use a computer, it is convenient to create their own user account for each of them. In this case, each user will be able to customize the settings of the working environment and frequently used applications. It will have its own profile directory and directories for storing personal data. Over time, a person may stop using a computer and his account will become unusable. However, your profile data will still be stored on your computer, taking up space. In this case, there is no choice but to delete the user, freeing up some of the machine's resources.
