Recover Files From Lost+found

Posted By Weston Ganger

My computer crashed and ran fsck but wouldn't start up anymore. I could only access the tty console, so while trying to backup my files I couldnt find my home folder anymore! But I happened to notice this lost+found folder and got curious. I looked into it and you can restore your files from that folder fairly easily.

mv /lost+found/#7733249 /home/yourUsername
