I had a LVM2 volume with two disks. The larger disk became corrupt, so I cant pvmove.
What is the best way to remove it from the group to save the most data from the other disk?
Here is my pvdisplay output:

Couldn't find device with uuid WWeM0m-MLX2-o0da-tf7q-fJJu-eiGl-e7UmM3.

  PV Name               unknown device

So I want to remove the unknown device (not present in the system).
Is it possible to do this without a new disk ? The filesystem is ext4.
