blog post on LVM volume recovery without backups…

LVM is the logical volume manager, or something like that, in Linux and related operating systems.  Volume groups have metadata.  Logical volumes can be quite intricate: see Wikipedia article

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Logical_Volume_Manager_%28Linux%29

for more exotica.  The article at the link above is from someone that had messed up lvm metadata, a lost volume, no backups and still recovered the whole volume or volumes on his hard drive(s).  Others commented that he’s their saviour or hero.  So, it seems like a useful post.
