So I accidentally repartitioned my 500 GB SSD to a LVM.
Before, it consisted of:

  • 120 GB for the system,
  • 150 GB for data
  • the rest free space for Linux.

After I switched the SSD to a new laptop the OS seemed to malfunction. Therefore I wanted to install Ubuntu alongside of Windows (because of university programs), but I accidentally chose to install Ubuntu and also ticked the LVM box.

I already ran Testdisk:

Disk /dev/sda - 480 GB / 447 GiB - SSD 480GB  
Disk /dev/sdb - 8021 MB / 7650 MiB - Ubuntu live stick  
Disk /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-root - 478 GB / 445 GiB - SSD 480GB  
Disk /dev/mapper/ubuntu--vg-swap_1 - 1027 MB / 980 MiB - SSD 480GB  
Disk /dev/dm-0 - 478 GB / 445 GiB - SSD 480GB  
Disk /dev/dm-1 - 1027 MB / 980 MiB - SSD 480GB  

All it could find is the LVM part on sda, mapper/ubuntu--vg-root and dm-0, even on deeper search.

GParted finds 513 MB of unallocated space and sda1 as lvm2 pv at the mounting point ubuntu-vg with a space of 446.63 GiB, flagged as lvm.

Does anybody have any suggestions?
