Recover a Corrupted File System on Linux

All is not lost upon discovering a corrupted file system! Both XFS and EXT file systems offer tools to aid in the repair and recovery of a broken file system. In this lab, you will investigate and repair two servers that were accidentally overwritten, and then mount the servers to confirm the fix has worked. _This lab is not approved or sponsored by Red Hat._
