One way to replace a broken Desktop folder
Authored by: bdm on Oct 11, '07 06:20:07PM

As other posters have pointed out, you probably have more troubles than you realise. However, to comment only on your original suggestion: add the -p switch to cp command so that ownership, permissions and dates are preserved. Then you don't need the chown command.
