data missing after making profile roaming

In one of our offices they installed a new terminal server on the domain and users login to this from outside the office.
One user could not log in because it said his account did not have remote access permissions (or something similar).  
So I logged in to the server, went to AD, added his account to the appropriate groups and now he can log in.
The problem now is that all his data (desktop, My Docs, Outlook profile, favorites etc) are all gone.

Are these still on the server somewhere so i can relocate things back into his now roaming profile?

It sounds like he recieved a brand new profile.
Both the new and the old profile should be under c:\documents and settings under some form of the user name, unless he is getting a temporary profile.
