This is my first time, so please be gentle..
By mistake i removed a directory yesterday and have spent quite some time trying to figure out how - if possible - to recover.
My system is Fedora 11 (upgraded from 10->11), running on a laptop, with default (LVM) partion layout and luks encryption..
On the list of what I've tried is
lsof: which by simple grep doesn't seem to know anything about my missing directory
debugfs: which fails due to bad superblock
ext3grep: which also fails due to bad superblock
If anyone has any suggestions on what to do *please* let me know. I'm rather familiar with linux on a general level, but not with the file system hardware low level-stuff. :/
Will it affect my chances of recovery to try to use fsck to fix the bad superblocks?
Thanks in advance!
