  • Hi Ian,

    The member has not been deleted, it has been deactivated. You can permanently delete it - please see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff486991.aspx -  or re-activated and re-use it. To re-activate it you need to go to Version Management\Transactions or use the script in http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqlmds/thread/7902cfb5-7c4a-453a-8d06-10aab3f2d8b9.

    Hope this helps,
