Deleted user, want him back...


I blew it. I deleted a user without thinking this thing through. Is there any way of getting the files back that were in the users home directory? I am using FC3. Please say yes...
Thanks

Todd

Did you manually remove them? If so sorry, you are out of luck.

If the home directory is gone then it's gone. Sorry guy.
Do you not have backups?
