Hi all,

I did an incredibly stupid thing today. I went an deleted (dragged to the trash, but did not empty it) the filevault sparse bundle image in my user directory and went and shutdown my Macbook. After a reboot, I could not log in.

Is there a way to recover from this situation?

If you want to know how I got myself in this mess, I was trying to make space on my macbook and found a 44GB file. I didn't know what it was and just tried to drag it to the trash to see if anything bad would happen. After moving to trash, things seemed ok, so I shutdown the machine for a while. So that's how it happened. Now I'm kicking myself.

Thanks for any help.
Nik.

Macbook, Mac OS X (10.5.6), filevault enabled
