I messed up installing a mod and replaced the entire data folder with the mods data folder. So I have the data the the mod changed but nothing else. I need to restore to the original data folder. Is it possible to do this via steam? Or could someone with a backup send me a .zip of the default?

Like stated above yes you can. Just delete the affected folders and under Steam right click on Skyrim and find the tab that has "Verify the integrity of game cache" and it will validate all of the game files and replace anything that is missing/overwritten automatically.

And if you use a mod tool like mod organizer, it works in a 'magic' way that doesn't touch your original skyrim folders so they never get messed up.
