How can I un-convert an Account to a Lead?

Knowledge Article Number 000188019
Description I have accidentally converted one of my Leads into an Account and a Contact.  Is there anyway through Salesforce to un-convert my Lead?
Resolution Currently this is not a function within Salesforce.


Some of the current workarounds are as follows:
1. This may require you to export the converted Lead using Data Export Services or Apex Data Loader (Enterprise, Performance, Developer, & Unlimited Editions) 

          Then re-importing the Lead after you have deleted the Account and the Contact.  (Possibly Opportunity if initially created upon Lead conversion)


2.  You may also manually re-create the Lead after you have deleted the Account and the Contact. (Possibly Opportunity if initially created upon Lead conversion)


Current Idea in the Idea Exchange to un-convert Lead is on the link below.
