    This should be a good place to start.

      There is no supported way to just bring back the deleted users- you either restore from the backup (and lose everything since) or you don't.

      There is a mod ob that supposedly can restore deleted users but it is of course not supported by us.

      Actually its in the graveyard, sorry. It wouldn't work how you wanted to anyway, it was more for restoring usernames to posts changed to "Guest" users. Didn't work with a database backup.

              Thee is a text importer in impex that would allow you to import usernames and email addresses if you could create a csv file of only the names you want imported.

              Unfortunately you'd need to reset all this passwords since you can't decode the password already in the database and you can only import plane text password using the text importer.

                This is it, import the users, and the passwords are not a problem, as they could use password recovery
