[linux-lvm] Disk Crash.



I know this is not the first mail of the type, but I have to write to you 
because I haven't found documentation to solve my problem.

I used to have two hard disks, but one of them is in a better place now: hell. 
That disk had the O.S. and a lot of personal files. It was part of a volume 
group with the other disk, which is in good conditions.

First, I am not trying to recover the data on the damaged disk. What I want 
right now is just to see what data is on the other disk. I want to be able to 
mount it and read it.

Let me paste some information that I recovered using this command:
#dd if=/dev/hda2 bsd=512 count=255 skip=1 of=/tmp/hda2-raw-start
and removed all the non-ascii characters:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The drive with the id = "02i2U4-QCDv-pzqD-wE7i-4cVB-uIwU-9AXgPS" is the one 
that failed.

I tried to edit this file and remove all the things related to the failed 
drive, changing the PV1 to PV0 and other stuff. Then did a

#vgcfgrestore -f /tmp/hda2-raw-start vg
#vgchange -a y
#lvscan
ACTIVE		/dev/vg/storage

And then I tried to mount it: Mount said I should specify the filesystem type 
and when I did it it said wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock... bla 
bla ba...

What can I do? Please tell me there is a way to mount that disk and recover 
some information, pleeeeeaseee. Lie if you have to!... no, don't do it.

Thank You
