Should I try to revive my dead node?

I had a computer where the main drive failed. It has taken me a few weeks to get it back up and running again but my initial node data still exists on my computer. I figure at this point it has been long enough that I can’t exit my node gracefully. Should I even try to bring the node back up again or just start a new one? If I should bring it back up are there instructions to handle this?

Thank you!

I believe my identity was on the now dead drive so I am not sure I can get that either.

usually its recommended to keep the identity with the storagenode data, so if you configured your node by the recommendations, you should be able to recover it just fine.

if the identity is lost then the node is 100% dead.
but if you can find it spinning up the node shouldn’t be a problem.
