comment How to recover my directory structure and files from a messed-up partition
@Tshepang (first comment): I was hoping there is a way to expose the entire drive image as a single device, then do some magic, then attempt to mount a single partition from it. I'm sorry I couldn't be of any real help. Good luck!

comment How to recover my directory structure and files from a messed-up partition
@Gilles: That's correct. @Tshepang: since you didn't mention the particulars of how this happened, I assumed that a hardware error could be involved. Even if not, you should retain an image of it to roll back to if an attempted solution does not work out.
