I was trying to run Debian installer on top of an already luks-encrypted partition (I tried to do use cryptsetup in the console).
I don’t remember ever saying “yes, destroy” data, but what I see now, is that encrypted turned into a PV (LVM).
Do I have any chance to restore the original?
I don’t know the PV format vs the encrypted partition, so wondering if maybe no real damage was done, or if there is way to partially restore anything.
Debian still hasn’t fixed this bug? I lost data to this five years ago.
Yes, it’s a bug. No, it isn’t fixed. Yes, you’re going to have to restore from backups, and I hope to Gawd you actually have them.
