Angry iBook flips out

I dont know how it happened but all of my data from my iBook is suddenly gone, nothing in iTunes, nothing anywhere. Does anyone know what happened, and if can be fixed by Apple? (My iBook is still under AppleCare warranty)

Did you (or anyone else) rename the home folder?

Yes, I think that is the problem...I didn't rename, but someone using my computer probably did, since I found some of my files under a different name, but even when I'm logged in as an admin, everything is gone even my apps...thanks

Yup, I've done that a couple of times, quite annoying, huh?
