Re: [linux-lvm] Accidental removal of logical volume - any way to salvage?

First of all, thank you for a fast response.

The backup of /etc was done after running 'lvremove' and 'vgexport' so if I understand you correctly that won't do any good.

Yes, I am using LVM2. How do I salvage the metadata "from the front of the disk?"

man vgcfgrestore if you retained metadata backups from /etc from before
you deleted the LV.

Failing that, if you're using LVM2 you might still be able to salvage
the metadata from the from the front of the disk.
