mklost+found - create a lost+found directory on a mounted Linux
second extended file system
is used to create a
directory in the current working directory on a Linux second extended
file system. There is normally a
directory in the root directory of each filesystem.
pre-allocates disk blocks to the
directory so that when
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
will not have to allocate data blocks in the filesystem during recovery.
