That's gonna be no picnic if you manually restore every file (assuming
their file-system entries haven't already been overwritten).

My best suggestion would be to back-up all your important files (ie.
/home) and make a list of installed packages/applications and re-install.

If it was Gentoo, I'd say you can "emerge --empty-tree" which would
simply in-place reinstall everything, but somehow I doubt that's the
case, alas .. :)

Best regards, and good luck!
