I have a tale of woe to tell. I had (notice the past tense) a LVM VolumeGroup comprised of two physical volumes that failed due to the accidental deletion of one of those volumes. I am now trying to recover data from the non-failed drive, but I it appears that there is no filesystem on the disk.
When I run the image through strings, I see data on the drive so I know that it is not blank. Also, I see the LVM partition via fdisk, so I believe that the partition is intact.
How can I evict this drive from the failed VolumeGroup and then mount the ext3 filesystem so I can recover the data on the drive?
What data can I post to help inform those willing to assist?
