Lost XServe User - any chance of a recovery?
I've got a user who, since September, has had no issues logging in and working on our iMacs (XServe network). Yesterday the user reported that none of their work was visible upon login. Their home folder doesn't exsist (or is somehow in the wrong place...) - and time machine backups do not contain a trace of their home folder. The iMacs that they have used were checked, and local home directories exist - with no work in them.
The same day, when I logged in to the XServe, I was presented with a message indicating that it crashed and restarted unexpectedly (first time I've known it to do this). Could it be that their home directory was not correctly created but they were still able to login and retrieve work done in previous sessions - and when the XServe failed, all the work was lost. I don't see how this is possible but it's my only guess at the minute, given the is no trace of the user within our users share.
Any thoughts would be appreciated...

Its a long shot, but it's not on the local hard drive of the iMac in question?

Sadly no. Well, yes and no. There was a home folder with our usual folder structure, but it was like new with no work inside.
