Retrieving the file-system from a lost Linux partition
When you lost a Linux partition on Storage device, there is a 80% chance that you can retrieve the file-system in it just by Re-creating the lost Partition. I have tried couple of times in the recent past and it worked successfully.
Here's the sequence of steps which I performed to retrieve the file-system "/us2001" on a lost partition from a SAN disk:
[root@server-tap04 mapper]# mount -t ext3 /dev/mapper/us2001np1 /us2001
mount: special device /dev/mapper/us2001np1 does not exist
