Topic: another disk label screw-up
i recently installed ubuntu on my aging mac, and was enjoying the experience, except that my internal drives would not mount.
i set the disk label on my mac drive, thinking that was why it was not being recognized by the system, but instead made the entire drive unreadable.
i had been using a recovery utility to create backups, in case of a partition error, but these show up as partitions when i run testdisk, and have added to my problems.
all of the information is intact, if i can recreate my partition map, which should be backed up somewhere, right? my current system drive is backed up ( Backup.log ) in my home folder, but is that file backed up redundantly anywhere else? i know the system.log gets archived, and i am hoping the backup.log is as well. anyone know where?
my options are limited for recovering my files without accurate directory information. and there is a lot on there to recover. i honestly thought the worst that would happen was that i would make my selected partition unreadable, and it was just an empty swap partition. oops.
i suspect i will be spending the next few days scouring old log files... : (
