We're using Crowd and LDAP to manage users and recently migrated from OnDemand to a server version.
We had a duplicate account with a personal space (different emails/different usernames). We deactivated the duplicate user, but expected to be able to see the old personal space. The space is still in the database but is not visible, or searchable.
How can we retrieve those pages?
In my experience, you should still be able to navigate to the space by specifying the URL –
An administrator (may need to be a super-user, a member of the confluence-administrators group) should be able to move any pages out to a different space.
Jonathan's approach is certainly the right first step; so you don't end up with content stomping on each other, have your friendly neighborhood Confluence admin move the content you want preserved over to the "new" user personal space.
You may still end up with content now in there that the owner can't touch so you may find that you need to do one or both of a couple of things:
As I said, that second one is HUGELY a YMMV and probably should take a shot at it first on a dev system but I have had success with this in the past.
