partition table seems to be corrupted .. (physical != logical ) LVM


For 2 days, I have a very big problem.

One of my drive got corrupted ( fdisk tells me that the physical partition is not the same size than the logical one ).

The physical is near 30mb! and the logical near 1tb.

I don't know what I can do to solve this.

sfdisk does not tell me any error.

This drive is part of a 3 drive LVM.

The lvm is mounted as /home so my OS is intact.

I cannot use this drive anymore. I would like to know if somebody could give me some informations about this issue. I don't want to lose 700gb of data! I have svn repositories and a lot of work. I know, I have some backup, but I have to recover the latest data.

at the same time this corruption occured, grub stopped to work.

Thank you!
