    I've deleted a user account without saving a .dmg file. Is there anyway to get this information back--- this is awful.

    thanks

    if the files have been deleted from the hard drive, then there's no easy way out. what is gone, is gone.

    if the files are really worth a lot, you can get them out by giving a professional data recovery company take care of it. but it's costly so feasible only to recover really valuable data.

    look in the root user's account.

    i think the user's home folder might have been moved there when it was deleted...
