When migrating jira to another server, why is it necessary to copy the home directory from the old jira instance?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Migrating JIRA to Another Server

I get it that it is necessary to backup the database, but why the home directory?

I'm interested in moving from windows to linux machine.

have a read of this.

Are these files portable between operating systems?
