mklost+found - create a lost+found directory on a mounted Linux second
extended file system
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‐
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.
There are none.
