Always backup before anything / if the wind blows outside backup if the moon is full you should have backed up already.
I installed using format swap , format /boot and leave root partition = no modify going from 3.3 mini ot 3.4 mini and it reused my /home/elvis instead of replacing it with live cd /dvd user desktop /home/sabayonuser. Also added username + password when asked and this worked = no data lost.
Only diffs = add root / user only root and 1 user and once inside and working then I add other users by default or I am lazy LOL but this seems to work.
I did not use update or upgrade at all during this. Only other thing that could works is to backup then clean install + copy user back after -> creating the user and from live cd /dvd copy the user files back from backup replacing the new created user with same name.
Might be able to using UBCD just google for it or one of the linux recovery disks to undelete the files , UBCD has R-linux and several others in it to help recover files + it's free.
See lower on linked page for what is there.
