Because of a full disk crash of my PowerMac (using macOS 10.9.5 (Mavericks)), I lost an account named
entry: No trace of it can be found when using “System Preferences > Users and Groups,” or with terminal commands such as
su my_lost_account. However, all the files are still there, with the unamed uid, in the still correctly named home directory.
Is it possible for me to create a new account with the exact same login name and UID of my lost account and assign it with the home directory that already has content that I want to keep?
Thanks in advance for any clues.
