Hello, hopefully this will at least allow you to boot into a new admin account...
Reset OS X Password Without an OS X CD...
Starts up like the first time you buy a new Mac, but after filling in all that info again, you should have access to the computer and the other Users & files will still be there... give the new User a different name than an existing one.

I got into a new admin account. Now I won't succeed in enabling the root user or find another way to restore the recycling bin from my main account (filevault protected).

Whew, Filevault was a good idea gone terribly wrong from the start.
Acoup;e of things that may help move ir back...
Show Hidden Files 1.0...
Hidden Way is a toggle for hidden files view in Finder...
Show hidden files in OSX Finder
Open the Terminal and type or copy/paste:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool true
Reverting to the default of NOT showing hidden files:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles -bool false
*Restart or Force Quit Finder required to take effect.*
Finder Force Quit, or restart required to take effect.
Might try BatchMod, it's much better/easier than the Finder for recursive Permission changes, but careful, it's powerful...
ONLY recommended to show ehere that ./Trash file is.

I got to see the hidden files and with BatChmod I can get into my main account. But only to the library and a selected number of folders. No one with a .trash file.
I can find a file .Trashes but can not do anything with it. It is last changed yesterday when I deleted the sparsebundle.
I need to put the sparsebundle back in its original place. But don't know how.

I got into the .Trashes file and found the file anitavanveen.sparsebundle. anitavanveen is the main account with the problems (my girlfriend).
I copied this file to the root of the HD and pressed reboot. Now the macbook is already 15 minutes busy with starting up. I already shut down and started again with shift hold for safe mode.

I don't actually know whee the anitavanveen.sparsebundle goes, but I suspect in the Users folder at root, or Users>HerShortName> folder.

I didn't succeed....
When I recovered the sparsebundle from the recycling bin it was only 200MB of the original 93GB. ALso a specialised HD Data Recovery company couldn't fix it. This because Mac OS automaticly fragmentates the hard disk and by this erases pakkages of the sparsebundle. In this case to much to fix anything....

Ah, sorry to hear, but yes, you can't do anything now it would appear.
