Alfresco was running fine. I stopped it, restarted it - now I get this error on startup:

04:00:04,249  ERROR [web.context.ContextLoader] Context initialization failed

It constains a directory with a name that does not match a store protocol /var/lib/alfresco/alf_data/backup-lucene-indexes/{store_type}
