The partition has been used for years and mounted as home under various versions of Ubuntu and Debian. I didn't set it up initially as I bought the machine with Ubuntu on it and the RAID in place, so I don't know how it was set up initially.
The result of that command is:
Code:
# file -s /dev/md0
/dev/md0: sticky Linux rev 1.0 ext3 filesystem data, UUID=29aa2337-99c4-4e5e-8212-bea654f4ca17 (needs journal recovery) (large files)

I'm currently copying hidden config files etc across just in case but I wondered if there is a way to recover things?
Yes, I know, I'm am idiot and should be more careful.
273,

Don't be so hard on yourself. People who don't make 'misteaks' are folks who never do a thing, LOL! Yours is NOT a 'problem', it's an "opportunity to learn". Once you've done this, you will know NOT to do it again or one of the many ways you CAN make this 'error'. Thomas Edison tried over ten thousand times to make a lightbulb. Each time, he failed until he
got it right. When asked by a reporter about all the 'failures', he said, "Those were not failures, it was just one of ten thousand ways NOT to make a light bulb". Smart man, huh? No matter how hard he tried a failed, he always saw the "bright" things it caused.

I make "oppertunities to learn" constantly, in fact, I'm working overtime to do it, ROFL! Everything in LIFE has a purpose. You'll figure this out

Cheer up, Mate, the best is yet to come.

Respectfully submitted,
Regards,

"Buck"

Thanks Buck, just think I ought to know better since I already knew to treat gparted with respect and understood what could happen if I messed up -- I've been partitioning disks and installing OSs for years. As you say, it's an opportunity to learn though even if it is confusing me at the moment.
