USB Stick only has lost+found after opening on new server
I was attempting to migrate some users to a new server, that is I reinstalled the OS on the same box. Made a rookie mistake with some file permissions...
Anyways, I copied various user directories to a ext2 formatted thumb drive while preserving file systems. After installing the OS, I connect the drive, the OS detects it, giving [sdb] Assuming Drive cache: write through, [sdd] No Caching mode page present...etc.
Looked suspicious. I mount -t ext2 /dev/sdb1 /media/USB1GB
However, all the files are gone and there is only a lost+found directory with nothing in it. I am working from the command line.
Any suggestions? Are my users info gone forever?
