That depends how you deleted it. By default, when you delete an account in Mac OS X (through -> System Preferences -> Accounts), the account's home folder and its contents will remain intact, and recovery is simply a matter of recreating the account. Is the home folder still there? Is there a Deleted Users folder inside /Users?I unfortunately deleted an account on my imac that had all my email, docs, etc. Can anyone help me retrieve?
You're correct that the OP should check for a Deleted Users folder and see if the account in question has a disk image in there BEFORE recreating the account--if it's NOT in there, you don't want to be doing ANYTHING on the computer to maximize the chance of getting stuff back with data salvage software.Do not remake the account, stop using the drive immediately. Invest in some recovery software and let it run.
