Use "file" and/or "less" to figure out what the files were, and use "mv"Quote:>Hi,

or "cp" to put them back... you DID have a fairly recent backup, didn't
you? If there are more than 20 or so files in /lost+found, then restoring
from backup would be the easiest and fastest way.
Since files ending up in /lost+found are ref'ed by inode number, it might
be a good idea to do an "ls -iR > inode.txt" for each filesystem, and save
that file somewhere safe Just In Case.
