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.

AUTHOR

mklost+found has been written by Remy Card <card@masi.ibp.fr>, the developer and maintainer of the ext2 fs.

BUGS

There are none :-)

AVAILABILITY

mklost+found is part of the e2fsprogs package and is available for anonymous ftp from tsx-11.mit.edu in /pub/linux/packages/ext2fs.
