MKLOST+FOUND(8)                      System Manager's Manual                      MKLOST+FOUND(8)

NAME
       mklost+found  - create a lost+found directory on a mounted Linux second extended file sys‐
       tem

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 filesys‐
       tem 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.
