SO, I had a bad disk day.
Right now my datastore is up, but I can't see all my files.
In particular I am unable to see one of the directories that contains one of my VMs:
When I do an 'ls -l' in the volume I see this:
/vmfs/volumes/4daf6280-1eb1c868-29e1-001fc63813c9 # ls -l
ls: ./NewNAS: No such file or directory
So it makes me think that perhaps the files are still there somewhere but that there is something wrong with the directory or something.
I see this in my /var/log/messages:
Oct 7 19:27:04 vmkernel: 0:02:43:05.078 cpu2:22425)WARNING: Fil3: 11613: Found invalid object on 4daf6280-1eb1c868-29e1-001fc63813c9 <FD c0 r0> expected <FD c2 r0>

Related question, if I can't recover this folder, I can probably easily recreate the VM, it was just a simple Ubunutu system that had a RAID array using RDMs. My second question is, if I can't recover the VM and the virtual disks for the RDMs, can those be re-created without loosing data?
Thanks in advance!
