I have a time machine backup and I am on Mavericks and  through some wrong advice I removed the icloud account from my system preferences pane under internet accounts.

I want the same name I used before so I can recover notes, reminders, calendar etc.  I have an ipad that I sync with and now it isn't working.  The content on the iPad isn't showing up on the MacBook Pro anymore.

How do I restore it from my backup?

Thanks,

Randal

If you signed-out the iCloud account in your system preferences .. the data may still be online.

Have you tried logging into iCloud to see if your data is still online?

Can you confirm your version of OSX also?

I have logged into iCloud but clicking on the mail icon I don't see the name of the account anywhere.  So you will need to guide me to see if the account is still there.

My OS X is 10.9.1

On the top right in the iCloud web interface you can see your details under Account Settings.

Can you login to that account in OSX under the System Preferences in the iCloud preference pane.  Can you confirm that the Mail, Contacts, Calendars etc. checkboxes have a tick to indicate they are active?
