Problem Importing a Vanilla 2 Forum onto a fresh installation - users being deleted

I am wondering if anyone has had this problem.

We were having issues with the database of our forum. We were finally just told to

1) export our Vanilla 2 forum using the export tool
2) Import the Vanilla 2 Forum onto a Fresh Installation
3) Redo all the settings and custom stuff and good to go.

Now, we would be good to go however here is the issue, the import has caused the site to have approximately 600 deleted users (we have roughly 900 users) and many users are no longer able to log in. Luckily we didn't close down the old forum and are keeping it going until we can find a viable solution.

Has anyone run into this issue before?

    Haven't had this issue, but maybe you could try using phpMyAdmin to export the user data from the current forum's mysql database, and then import it in to the new one.
