I've recently removed Microsoft's Office suite according to the instructions on their web site, and I believe I may have gotten ri of some system files in the process. I hear that I can install OS X on top of my current installation to restore them, but because I have a Mac mini, my only option is to use Lion's recovery mode.
If I use Lion's Recovery HD to reinstall OS X over the existing installation, will I lose my data?
I'm going to be installing Mountain Lion in the upcoming weeks, will the ML installer restore the missing files as well? If it will, I rather just wait for the release.
