OS 10.3 - HELP! FileVault has killed my home folder!!!

Hi there - I am new to the forum, and I've got a big problem...

I'm running MacOSX 10.3.9 on a dual G5 PowerMac. I use a seperate user account for my work stuff and my regular personal use. I decided it might be a good idea to protect my work stuff with FileVault a few days ago, but last night it crashed on shut-down, and now when I log in, that user account is completely reset, and the only evidence of any of my data, preferences, etc. is a corrupted disk image!

Please tell me there is a way for me to recover this information! I have the majority of it backed up but at least a month's worth of work has been either locked away from me or destroyed...

ANY help would be appreciated - I'm in a total panic here!

QUOTE Thanks
