Slackware :: Way To Restore Deleted LVM2 Volumes?

Jun 12, 2010

I was trying to remove a logical volume, but used the lvremove command incorrectly.

I did something like:

Code:

Thinking it would remove somelv from myvg

But instead it said "volume group somelv: not found" and then deleted all the logical volumes in myvg.

Is there any way to restore them or is it reinstall time?

I had some backups of my system, but unfortunately they were stored on a logical volume in the same volume group.

Fedora :: Deleted Menu.lst - How To Restore

Apr 1, 2011

I have a Laptop where I installed both Fedora 11 and windows 7 dual boot.

While I was upgrading Fedora 11 to Fedora 14 using preupgrade, I tried to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst file to make an option to continue upgrading the system after rebooting.

Accidentally, I deleted the file content and I couldn't restore it

I knew then that I'll face a problem when I reboot the system, and I faced it >> the grub selection menu disappeared , and only the line (grub> ) appeared when I reboot the system.

1- These commands:

Code:

But when I rebooted , nothing changed and the same (grub> ) appeared again.

2- I used the instructions in the PDF attached, but unfortunately nothing changed.

I think that I have to rewrite the menu.lst and grub.cnf files but I'm not expert and I don't know exactly what was there (locations , commands , etc. )

The current system monitor for the file system is shown in the next image:

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Deleted Truecrypt Partition

Feb 16, 2010

my /dev/sdb was a truecrypt partition that was mounted when I accidentally deleted the partition in gparted (instead of sdc, stupid). I'm pretty sure I haven't overwritten anything since then, but I'm not sure how to go about recovering this one. To confound the problem, the only way I can install stuff to my ubunut machine is by downloading on a windows machine and transferring by memory stick.

Ubuntu :: Partition Table Was Deleted / Cant Restore?

Mar 2, 2010

I was working on creating a partition on a new hard drive I was planning on using for storage. I wasn't paying attention and chose to delete the partition on my master. I am running a dual boot with Vista and Ubuntu. When I rebooted It will only go to the Grub> prompt. Ive ran TestDisk and though that I had corrected the problem but it didnt. After running TestDisk again here is what It came up with.

Disk /dev/sda - 320 GB / 298 GiB - CHS 38914 255 63
Partition Start End Size in sectors
L HPFS - NTFS 0 32 33 28554 254 63 458734027
L Linux 28555 1 1 38585 254 63 161147952
L Linux Swap 38586 1 1 38912 254 63 5253192
Structure: Ok. Use Up/Down Arrow keys to select partition.
Use Left/Right Arrow keys to CHANGE partition characteristics:
code....

After writing the table above I rebooted. Windows prompted me for my restore disk. I rebooted to the live cd again and ran Fdisk.

Ubuntu :: How To Restore Deleted Logical Volume

Jul 30, 2010

I have 3 harddisks, 1 for system and 2 for data.

To manage it more easy, I tied 2 harddisk in LVM. And I made an logical volume. It used ext4 for it's filesystem.

Today, I wanted to format and reinstall the system. So I booted the system using Ubuntu CD. But managing the partition, I accidently delete the logical volume. Because backup(/etc/lvm) was in itself, I couldn't restore the old config. I just create new logical volume.

As I expected, I couldn't mount it correctly. Mount said that "Mount: Mouting failed A on B! Invalid argument!"

I must recover it, because it has a lot of import data. What should I do?

Ubuntu Installation :: Testdisk Can't Restore The Partition - Just Deleted

Aug 8, 2010

I tried to install Ubuntu next to XP. After restart - no XP and no Ubuntu. Something wrong with loader I guess, I see command line prompt (of the loader I guess).

So I restarted from liveCD. But no "Repair Install" option like in XP CD. So, I deleted partition to install again on top of old, then learned a loader possibly could be fixed.

So, the problem is: testdisk cannot restore partition I deleted. I didn't write on disk anything. May be swap space after couple reloads from liveCD corrupted it?

It complains "The harddisk (...) seems to small!", it sees some other partitions and doesn't see what Gparted and Disk Utility.

Let me know the best approach to get back XP running (having Ubuntu would be good too).

Here below are the screen captures for details.

Quich Search results. Can't recover what's found. Why 4 partitions are found? Notice, "The harddisk seems too small !" Could this be a problem? HDD is not Maxtor anymore

The gap is there but no deleted partition shown

Essentially same thing... going for deeper search

Deep Search hasn't recover anything new. And shows same results as Quick Search (2nd testdisc image )Hit "continue"...

Now the partitions shown as deleted because of overlapping. The partition to be recovered is still not in the list.

Anyway, my final goal is to get WinXP back and if possible, install Ubuntu. It's nice that installer still sees the XP. Too bad the loader doesn't. how to get it done.

Unlike during installation of XP, ubuntu doesn't offer to utilize the deleted partition. Is it going to stay empty/unallocated? Forget the empty space, will I get XP running if I continue and install?

Ubuntu Security :: Cannot Restore Deleted Directory Using Rdiff-backup

May 17, 2011

I have carefully made daily backups using rdiff-backup, so in the case of needing to restore I can do so.

But I deleted a directory yesterday, and made a backup in the evening. Therefore, the directory is not in the latest mirror, but in the incremental backup from yesterday.

Now I need to restore the directory. But I cannot figure out how to!

I can see the directory in yesterday's incremental backup; i.e., the following works:

Code:

Where [backupdir] is the backup (mirror) directory, and [nameofdir] is the name of the directory I'm trying to restore.

So, I have tried to restore. This is the type of thing I have tried:

Code:

Where to-restore.lst holds the name of the directory to restore (in rdiff-backup's format) and [restoredir]is where I want the restored directory to go to.

But, I get errors like:

Code:

Useful file specifications begin with the base directory or some pattern (such as '**') which matches the base directory. Well, obviously the file specification doesn't exist in the [restoredir]. That's because I'm trying to restore it! If I try to create an empty directory first, it complains:

Code:

How do I restore a deleted directory from a previous day's backup to a designated destination?

General :: Write A Bash Script To Restore Deleted Files To Original Location?

Dec 5, 2010

I have managed to write a bash script that moves files to the recylce bin instead of being deleted. Then (with a bit of assistance) wrote another bash script that deletes the files from the recycle bin. Now I need to write one that will restore the files preferably to their original location? I am very new to linux and stuggling with where to even begin...any ideas? There seems to be some advice about creating a cloning tree, but I've never heard of them?

Slackware :: Nstallation CD When In A Pinch With A System On Logical Volumes?

Nov 3, 2010

I would like to ask if is it possible to boot Slackware with the installation CD when in a pinch with a system on logical volumes? For the usual fdisk partitions the procedure is known:

Code:
boot: root=/dev/sda1 noinitrd ro or something like that. This way, the system boots with mounted basic partitions. My question is whether there is an option to achieve the same if the system is installed on logical volumes? I need to do this on a machine with dual booting Windows + Linux. The Windows needs to be reinstalled, but as is well known, the boot sector will then be overwritten. So after the Windows reinstallation I will need to boot Slackware with the installation CD and run lilo.

Slackware :: Deleted 'dmesg' By Mistake?

May 30, 2011

had upgraded from slackware 13 to 13.1 and finally 13.37.After this I noticed that 'dmesg' could only be executed as root. So inorder for a user to execute 'dmesg' I executed 'ln -s /bin/dmesg /usr/bin/dmesg'.What happened next is the symlink was created but the dmesg executable was deleted.I do not want to reinstall the OS (very time consuming on a P3 with 512MB RAM) so I want to know which package provides dmesg so that I can reinstall it.The dmesg man page indicated that klogd will provide the package but then when I reinstalled it it was a no go.
