Are all of the user volumes located on psrwjmsafs1 partition c,
according to 'vos listvl'?

How are the backups stored? Do you back them up by using 'vos dump', or
are they tarballs or something? If you have volume dumps, you should be
able to 'vos restore' the volume dump to get the volume back.

Otherwise, for each user volume, make sure it's actually gone, and then
'vos delentry user.<username>', and then 'vos create ...' the volume
just like you normally would when first creating it. Then you can
populate the volume with the data you want to restore by just copying it
back into place (cp, rsync, whatever), and setting ACLs as you want.
