NAME

mklost+found – create a lost+found directory on a mounted Linux
second extended file system
 

SYNOPSIS

mklost+found

 

DESCRIPTION

mklost+found

is used to create a
lost+found

directory in the current working directory on a Linux second extended
file system. There is normally a
lost+found

directory in the root directory of each filesystem.

mklost+found

pre-allocates disk blocks to the
lost+found

directory so that when
e2fsck(8)

is being run to recover a filesystem, it does not need to allocate blocks in
the filesystem to store a large number of unlinked files. This ensures that
e2fsck

will not have to allocate data blocks in the filesystem during recovery.
 

OPTIONS

There are none.
