Sounds like your own file, but if its blank its probably been corrupted.

How exactly have you managed to restore the disc? Even if the directory
structure is in tack it shoulds if contents of files may have been
overwritten. In which case you are better off reformatting and recovering
everything from backups, otherwise you'll be finding broken apps and damaged
data files for months, and if they get in to your backups, you are stuffed.
Of course if you've been unwise enough not to take backups, you'll have to
download and reinstall all applications, and check every one of your data
files for damage.

Follow ups off list please.
