I guess the horse is long out of the barn, but at one point in time,
99.9% of the data and the file system was intact, even after the DROP.
It stands to reason that you weren't the first people who made this
mistake. And that there might be some answers out there.
A simple search on groups.google.com uncovered this :
> Wow, did I ever screw up.
> I meant to drop an unused development database and ended up dropping a used
> production database.
> Can I recover it?
> If so, how?
Go find a backup ;-0
If you've not got any then you can, but it may not work, restore /
undelete files - their is a HOWTO on this, although its not simple, and
assumess that the files have not been overwriten (the undelete recovers
the inodes that point to the data).
Well, maybe it had to end. Thanks for the great service you
provided. Any chance anyone wants to buy your site?
