I have a git-annex repository on a USB drive (full of pictures), however, when I go to the actual drive:

$ cd /run/media/hinmanm/MINIDRIVE1/pics
$ ls -lh australia-2014-03

I get:

-rw-r--r--. 1 hinmanm hinmanm 1.1K Aug 22  2015 IMG_20140321_181130.jpg
-rw-r--r--. 1 hinmanm hinmanm 1.1K Aug 22  2015 IMG_20140321_181137.jpg
-rw-r--r--. 1 hinmanm hinmanm 1.1K Aug 22  2015 IMG_20140321_181221.jpg
-rw-r--r--. 1 hinmanm hinmanm 1.1K Aug 22  2015 IMG_20140321_181228.jpg
-rw-r--r--. 1 hinmanm hinmanm 1.1K Aug 22  2015 IMG_20140321_181233.jpg
... hundreds more .jpg files that are all 1.1K ...

It looks like the files think they are symlinks, instead of pictures:

$ cat australia-2014-03/IMG_20140321_181233.jpg XSym 0201 2ac7522707415dfe67ad5afa1ab3e516 ../.git/annex/objects/5F/Xw/SHA256E-s2499217--ad9525adf9a82e4ac83c89fd2bddfd2b2aef690ccbbddf38d91abc85f72509f6.jpg/SHA256E-s2499217--ad9525adf9a82e4ac83c89fd2bddfd2b2aef690ccbbddf38d91abc85f72509f6.jpg

Running git-annex fsck doesn't do anything, and trying to do git-annex indirect gives me:

$ git-annex indirect git-annex: This repository seems to be on a crippled filesystem, you must use direct mode.

It looks like there is still a bunch of data in .git/annex, as its 6.7gb. Is there a way I can get the files back and get git-annex working again, right now none of my photos are available :(
