Hi everyone, I’m hoping I can get some help figuring out what went wrong here and possibly recovering data.
I run a trial version of Seafile Pro with two users on a server at my home. I was away on a trip last week and my house had a power outage when I was gone, which forcefully shut down my Seafile docker instance. After restarting the container with docker-compose, I was unable to access any of my files that were stored remotely. Two of my clients (Windows SeaDrive and the iOS app) still list all of my files as I left them, but I am unable to access any that are not stored on the device. The web app shows basically a fresh install of SeaFile, with only one library ‘My Library’ with only 'seafile_tutorial.doc` inside.
The data directory of my seafile instance looks bad (I mean the volume for the actual seafile container). It’s size is only 2.7 MB when it should be storing at least several GB of data. There is about 200 MB of data in the MariaDB volume which is mostly from the files
I think I may be looking at total data loss here (which would be sad because I have no backups, but not a huge disaster because there wasnt much critical), but I am hopeful that there is some way to recover some of my files. It seems odd to me that a power loss would cause such a total loss of data. Actually, I am now wondering if I unintentionally reset all of the data by running
docker-compose down at some point in the process of rebooting the container after the power loss. Anyway, I would appreciate any tips on what log files or other things of the sort I should look at to investigate.
