I hope someone can help. I installed a 2nd HDD, set up 2 partitions on it.
I set up both partitions to mount automatically in /etc/ftsab.
One of the partitions has a mount point of my home directory /home/nick
Trouble is, I forgot to copy everything from the original /home/nick before testing my /etc/fstab by rebooting. (Yes, I'm an idiot). Now I cannot log in (it just bounces back to the login screen), and when I go to a terminal (ctrl+alt+f1) and log in there, my home dir is empty. When I comment out the changes in /etc/fstab, I still cannot log in. I even created a new user, and cannot log in with that either.
Is there any way of recovering my lost home directory?
How can I unbrick my system?
