Just a little more info in case it helps. I've got a Work profile, a Personal profile, and the standard Guest profile on the Macbook. The Work & Guest profiles seem to be fine. It's the Personal profile that seems to have crashed and reset itself.
Again, any ideas as to what's wrong (and more importantly, how to fix it) would be appreciated. Cheers.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5)
there seems to be an absolutely horrible bug in Snow leopard
where logging in as guest can wipe your MAIN account home directory as if it were the guest account home directory. I'm afraid you are another victim of this. do you have a backup? that's pretty much your only hope.
and disable the guest account asap and stop using it until this bug is fixed.Mac Pro 3.2 GHz, Mac OS X (10.6), Mac Pro 2.66GHz, powerbook G4 1.5GHz
Thanks for the info, V.K. ... this seems to be quite a nightmare I stumbled into.
I've tried backing some things up, but I'm probabl S.O.L. on any recent activity.

Just to gather a few more bits of info on this problem, do you have your account data on a separate partition to your OS? I noticed that someone else reporting a similar problem has this configuration.
Also, did you upgrade your existing installation, or was it a fresh install?3GHz Mac Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
