After reinstalling my system to a new SSD, my existing LVM was toast, it couldn’t find any physical volumes or volume groups.
I also don’t have backups of my LVM configuration.
Also to further complicate matters the LVM is spread across two Raid one devices.
Now I have a new volume group with the two raid devices as physical devices in it.
They claim to be empty and have no logical volumes.
[ben@manjaro ~]$ sudo !! sudo pvscan PV /dev/md127 VG new lvm2 [1.82 TiB / 1.82 TiB free] PV /dev/md125 VG new lvm2 [931.27 GiB / 931.27 GiB free] Total: 2 [2.73 TiB] / in use: 2 [2.73 TiB] / in no VG: 0 [0 ]
However I am convinced the data is still present on the partitions, I am running testdisk, which appears to be finding EXT4 file systems.
Ideally I would like to be able to recover the data of the disks, I am not too bothered by having the LVM back as I can recreate that from scratch if necessary.
