The whole Jenkins installation was on /levi (maybe not our best idea
ever...). I have backups of the complete configuration, but we'd still
loose the installed plugins and the build history. We'd literally start
from scratch and it would take some time to set it all up again. If it
turns out to be a matter of replugging the USB drive (or something
similarly simple), I would prefer copying the original installation over
(including the build history), rather than rebuilding it.

Also, the sage build directory was on levi and I don't know how that was
set up - Robert would know.
