Windows 7: Corrupt user profile when removing and adding computer to domain

Corrupt user profile when removing and adding computer to domain

We have removed a computer from the domain because of some network issues.
When we logged in to the computer as a local administrator we've noticed that the user folder of the domain user who was previously logged to that computer was almost empty(except for the appdata folder).
When we joined the pc back in the domain the computer made a new profile.
Unfortunaly the user did save some documents on his dekstop in the old profile.
Is there a possibilty to recover the documents.

The computer runs Windows 7 64 bit.

The old profile is not listed in the profile list in the system properties and also not visible as a profile in the register.

It's not a roaming profile and the hidden files are shown (also the protected operating files ares shown)
I only see the appdata folder

Hello,

What's the Servers OS? Do you have re-directed documents setup?

You said: "The old profile is not listed in the profile list in the system properties and also not visible as a profile in the register."
If you are logging on as a domain account then it will not appear in the local user list.

Do you have Shadow Copies enabled on the PC? If so, right click in the C:\Users folder and select properties. Go to previous versions and see if you can see the old user profile in there.

When removing a PC from the domain it does not remove the user profiles by default.
