Re: [linux-lvm] can data be found after cleaning the first sector by mistake? (tears in my eyes)



forgot to mention that 

[root localhost ~]# pvcreate -t /dev/md0
  Test mode: Metadata will NOT be updated.
  Can't initialize physical volume "/dev/md0" of volume group "datavg"
without -ff

so it looks like it can tell /dev/md0 is a pv belongs to vg datavg, but
some data are missed.
