What version of OS X and What version of Entourage?

What do you mean erased? Did Entourage start up with a new user account setup? Or is it your User but nothing shows?

Is anything else missing? Like Documents? Pictures? Music?

Let me know,

Entourage looks in the Mictosfot Folder in the Documents folder.

Is there still a Microsoft User Data folder in the Documents folder?

If not, search for it using the Finder search in any open Finder Window or type Command - F for Find.
