Mail is up Wednesday morning; other files to come
Mail is flowing as of 10:09 am today, once we worked out hardware and software complications - hydra-like, as they tend to be sometimes - at about 2 am and then recovered files from backup.
The backups are from Sunday morning at 3 am. We have recovered some of the changes between 3 am and 8 pm from the broken file system; I will make these available to you later.
Home directories contain only mail and web files right now; other files will follow.
You can get to backups of your files using Windows networking or sftp via the HomeDirectoryBackup link you'll find at the top of your home directory.
You will be able to login to workstations again later on today once the rest of the data is recovered. You can continue to use the tempuser account for now; Alt-F2 -> smb://ms/ will get you to your files.
I'll be posting some forensic information and remedial plans later for those who are interested.
