Do you have access to this server to create new accounts? If yes, you could create a "dummy" account using a fake domain name. With it, you can login to that account at your.server.com:2083 and check the file system is a fresh new account created on that server.

For one example, your screenshot shows rvskin. If you create a new account and there is no rvskin directory, you could kill it on this old account. That's really probably your best way forward.

Also, when you find things you want to remove from the old account, move them to one specific backup directory first. Just in case you break something and need to put it back.
