Dear All,
I was trying to clean up the Linux storage the other day and I accidentally removed a directory in content store, after that when i start Alfresco, it gives me an error message:

What can I do next ? Is there anyway I can recover the content store back or modify the database to skip scanning the files?
I do need the latest files back.
Please if there is anyone that can help.
Really urgent, thanks alot.
