[linux-lvm] A small query on LVM : Please dont ignore this

Dear Mr. Heinz Mauelshagen,

I have a small query for you.

Can we undo the change caused by command pvcreate /dev/hda8 that was a Win 32
FAT partition, in order to get back the lost information ?

Originally this command was intended to be as :

[root localhost]# pvcreate /dev/hdb8

However, it was a typo mistake that the command got executed on /dev/hda8, and
that was a windows logical partition. The drive can be seen, but does not show
any information stored on it.

Error displayed as :

G:\is not accessible

A device attached to the system is not functioning.


I have gone through all other related commands on LVM, but none seem to help me
in this case.

If you have any workaround on this problem, please suggest me the way to
resolve it, and get the contents of Win32 FAT partition.

Warm regards,
