I am afraid that I have no current backups of these files if backups at    
all :-(    
Is there no way to recover this data from the PVs? I found several   
threads about lost VGs, but no situation that fitted exactly to my case.  
Is there anything I can at least try to get the data back?  
Best regards from sunny Hannover (Germany), 
P.S. is it possible that the mailing list information on  
is partially outdated? Ths subscribe procedure did not work for me 
and also linux-lvm-approval at msede.com also seems not to work.
