MKLOST+FOUND(8)           (August 2021)           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 file system.

          mklost+found pre-allocates disk blocks to the lost+found
          directory so that when e2fsck(8) is being run to recover a
          file system, it does not need to allocate blocks in the file
          system to store a large number of unlinked files.  This
          ensures that e2fsck will not have to allocate data blocks in
          the file system during recovery.

     OPTIONS
          There are none.
