I would get my hands on a livecd, fix the filesystem and inspect
things before I drop the whole thing and look for backups. I would bet
that most of your data on the drive will be readable. After the
filesystem is fixed you should be able to chroot into the old system
and run the mysql database repair and dump the database. This is if
you need to reinstall.
