MKLOST+FOUND(8)                                                MKLOST+FOUND(8)



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  filesys-
       tem.

       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.
