Re: [linux-lvm] Partition table gone? Any way to restore?

When i do a less -f /dev/hde I can see a lot of data.

E.g. I see a string looking a lot like ReiserFS and scrolling down further I see /dev/vg00/<nameofparts created> so I'm sure a LOT is still there. I'll give it a shot. Any other ideas are still welcome!

The raid controller complained about a corrupt volume and destroyed it. It was done within a blink of an eye. (So i don't think everything is wiped.

However LVM can't find my VG anymore. fdisk -l /dev/hde shows me that there simply isn't anything on it. Where as fdisk -l /dev/hdg tells me "Disk /dev/hdg doesn't contain a valid partition table" as I would have expected.

gpart could possibly help by guessing a partition table. This helped me several times getting some friend's broken Windoze machines to work again. (@gpart author: if we ever meet IRL, I owe you a beer!)
