Accidental AD delete now desktop is gone

A users AD account was mistakenly deleted.  I was able to build his account again and attach his email to the account.  His desktop is now like a new machine.  Is there a fix?   Re-attach to his old desktop and programs?  Windows 7, Server 2008R2  Thanks.

Just look on the local machine under C:\Users\. Copy the contents of his old profile into his new profile.

That won't work, as security descriptors and paths need to get adapted. It should work for the desktop and start menu, however, but the HKCU settings are lost that way.

If you want to have the complete profile, use a tool like the Profile Wizard of http://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html (best to do that as admin) to copy over the old profile to the new one.
