    Need help to salvage LVM

    Hi all,
    I have four 1T drives that were mounted as an LVM on an unknown linux distro. The original hardware and boot HDD are gone.

    gparted etc reports that the 4 drives are healthy, formatted as ext3. Each disk is shown to have an lvm2 partition.

    With the drives connected, Disk Utility reports them as an array, but when I try to access the array with "Disk Utility" I get "not enough components" errors.

    vgscan gives me

    Code:
    sudo vgscan
      Reading all physical volumes.  This may take a while...
      No volume groups found
    Does anyone know of something else else I might try to salvage this LVM?

    Thanks

    I'm pleased to say that Windows came to the rescue via Raise Data Recovery for EXT3/ EXT4

    It's a pity similar excellent data recovery tools don't exist in the Linux World
