[linux-lvm] Really hoping data is still there...

I had 3 identical maxtor 30GB's with the 2nd & 3rd *striped* into VolGroup01.

The 3rd drive died and my inadequate rescue attempts resulted in my
recreating VolGroup01/LogVol00 containing only my 2nd disk.

A 'df' shows:

Filesystem           1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
                      27932828   2396176  24094860  10% /
/dev/hde1               101086     13858     82009  15% /boot
tmpfs                   257916         0    257916   0% /dev/shm
                          3963      1059      2700  29% /Data

Leading me to hope upon hope that 29% used means some of my data lives on.

That LV (/Data above) only contains a 'lost+found' folder, which is empty.

I have a vmware disk image on that drive that I would dearly love to get
back. It's beerworthy even.

Is there any hope for this lamer, or am I well and truly stuffed?
