I was working with IIS 7.0 and the problem is that my virtual directories under default web site got deleted. Now I am not able to add any new virtual directories.

When right clicking on the default website I get the following error displayed:

there was an error while performing this operation...the application '/' does not exist.

Can any one help me in getting back my virtual directories?

It sounds like editing applicationHost.config should turn up the config issue that will need to be manually adjusted.
