[linux-lvm] Sorry to bother you...



Hi!
 
I'm really sorry to bother you, but I'm desperate and I don't know any more to do in order to get my LVM partitions back up again.
 
I have a machine with three discs and together they formed one 226GB large partition using LVM. One of those discs crashed and the data is unrecoverable, leaving me with two discs which still contains data, but how do I extract the data?? I'm using reiserfs since it was the only filesystem which could be resized on the fly as I understood it. Somehow the volume group vg01 is nowhere to find any more after the crash, but I can still do a pvscan and see that the discs are intact.
 
Please give me some hints here. I have searched and searched for information and I can't find anything applicable in my case. I really need to get to the data that's still there hidden... no backup is made due to another problem. :-(

I have replaced the 80GB /dev/hdc1 with one 1GB drive just to see if it had any effect, but no...
Disc number three
 
pvdisplay -- "/dev/hdc1" is a new physical volume of 1.02 GB

/etc/lvmtab is empty same goes for the /etc/lvmtab.d directory
 
The device /dev/vg01....  is also gone but I think it was there earlier after the crash, but I have tried several ways of getting the info back so it might have been removed by issuing any of the commands??
 
Thanks a bunch for any hints or directions in order to get the information back...
