Ok, Murphy is conspiring against me.. a collegue borrows my XP laptop and destroys it (literally)
and a power outtage throws my Fedora system into partition hell all in matter of 72 hours.
Problem is that I was backing up everything onto my fedora system so minus what I have on my usb key and a few CDs I am SOL.
Here's where I'm at now: During my install, the system configured a Volume Group which included both my 80GB primary drive and my 40GB secondary drive. The 40 gig drive did not handle the power outtage well and as a result my system failed to boot, I presume because it was not able to confirm the entire volume group. I've since purchased a new drive and reinstalled fedora to get me back on my feet.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to attempt to recover the data off of the old disks? Before I reinstalled fedora, I took a stab at some ext3 recovery tools using XP but nothing could read the logical volume spanning both drives. The only thing I could connect to, XP or Fedora, was the 100MB boot partition.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
