OK, here is the thing:
I have my /home directory and the / directory with LMDE in two separated partitions, with some other unmounted partitions for good mesure. /home has been in EXT3 for years, and have never bothered to mess with that.
I´ve used Mint for a while. After some problems (with Cinnammon and other stuff) during the latest upgrade, I finally decided to try out Bodhi Linux in one of the other partitions, pointing the /home directory to the usual partition it is in.
While installing it, and for reasons I can't fanthom (I'd swear I didn't order it), the Install decided to set up the /home partition as EXT2. I am pretty sure the partition was not formatted though (I really need to hold on to that belief). Suddently the wholle /home is empty: I've lost all my data.
After some search, I went for the recovery process described here:
But still the data is missing.
I tried to log in through the older LMDE install, and the first time I got the message:
fsck.ext3: Unable to resolve 'UUID
fsck died with exit status 8
But after that, any attempt to log in through the Bodhi install gets the /home empty, and through the LMDE install just makes the laptop screen go blank.
I really need to recover that data. Please help.
