Hi Jonathan,
i try to use this command, and i've received this error mesage:

/etc/lvm/backup/principal: stat failed: No such file or directory
Couldn't read volume group metadata.
Restore failed.

I mean that i've lost the /etc/lv/ directory lost. I've read some 
information about how to construct the Metadata file with hexdump 
command (cf : 
But i not sure how to do this yet.

Thank's a lot.
