We have not finalized a room yet for the installfest, I hope it will be
sometime in the next 2 weeks.

Addressing your specific problem, it depends on how you backed up your
drive. Could you tell us the method you used, or software. Without that
we can't give you good advice.

If it's really urgent we can probably work something out I think this is
what the LERT (Linux Emergency Response Team) is supposed to do, it's
just been inactive for lack of requests. If you're on campus I can also
make arrangements to help you during the week.
