Missing SegmentInfo files after upgrade question (Issue 7430)

Hey all,
I ran exactly into this issue
https://github.com/elasticsearch/elasticsearch/issues/7430, probably
because some time back, we upgraded from 0.20.5 directly to 1.2.2. My
question is, so now one of my indices (just one shard really) is missing
the SegmentInfo file. Is there a way to recreate them? Or am I screwed?
Is there a way to even preserve the data from the other shards of the same
index that did not encounter the issue?

That one shard is likely hosed.

But if you a good replica of that shard then you may be able to delete the
hosed shard and let ES recover from the good one.

Or restore from snapshot...

That's what I thought. Unfortunately, I did minimal replication and the
other copy was wiped out due to disk failure. Is there a way to run that
index without the bad shard (4 out of 5 still good)? I'm gonna guess no.

Thanks,
Kris.

I'm not certain; maybe someone else can chime in if there's a way to
intentionally run in "degraded" mode where 1 out of 5 shards is missing?

You can delete the shard file(s) and then it'll create an empty one to
replace it. Obviously, that means data loss.
