Hi, so stupidly while messing about on my mac, i ran the following script in single user mode on startup; mount -uw / rm -rf /library/preferences/ rm var/db/dslocal/nodes/default/users/USERNAME.plist - ofc replace USERNAME with your current username. rm var/db/.applesetupdone exit now unfortunately i have lost my download files and my documents as well as my program cnfigurations. However, my music files, pics and application are all still there that i had before as well as a lot of the system info, I could also see some of my lost files in the 'recent documents' column, but could not open them. Does anyone have any suggestion on what i could do to retrieve it? Oh, i was not running time machine either.
