    There is a serious problem for me for 2 weeks, I hope someone could give some advice....
    I have a LV(LVM 1) formed by 4 PV on 4 HD Drives, formatted using reiserfs.
    Now 1 drive broken, but I can't get a replace drive.
    Then I try fix disk with reiserfsck, no use...
    Then I try fix disk with: reiserfsck --rebuild-tree, but got a fail info.
    I try many times, with LVM 2's" vgchange -P -ay " command, but also can't rebuildtree.
    So I can't access these data now.
    Some data on it is important, so I want to copy the data on 3 remained drive out.

    Who can give me some advice on how to get the remained data out? 
    Whether my data is already lost at all?

    Thanks for read this msg!
