[linux-lvm] Ran vgreduce --missing to remove broken disk, am I screwed?



Hi all,

I had a disk that stopped working. After booting I could see with pvdisplay
that the disk was missing. After reading everything I could find via google
I thought that you were supposed to run 'vgreduce --remove-missing volgrp0'
to remove the missing disk from the group.

After this the volume group looks OK but the entire logical volume got
removed! Am I screwed now or is there any way to salvage the data which is
on the remaining three disks?
