- Create a
lost+founddirectory in the current directory:
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.
There are none.

mklost+found is part of the e2fsprogs package and is available from http://e2fsprogs.sourceforge.net.
