Lost IIS Home Directory

After resizing the partition that contained an SBS 2003 installation everything worked with the exception of IIS web sites like Default Web, Company Web etc.
Is there any way to "repair" this other than reinstalling the OS. I would be happy with a generic/default \wwwroot to get started.

    Do you have a backup from which you can restore?

    Unfortunately not if the OS partition. Data is safe on seperate partition.

    Re-installed the OS partition. A pain but appeared to be my only option. Lucky it was a small network.
