Hi all,

so the problem is that in my xsan one of the volumes have restarted 2-3 times in a day. So i did cvfsck -wv. During the chek it reported File System Status as Clean and at the end that F+ile system have been modified+. After that i can not find some of the files. Is this normal behavior of cvfsck? Is there any chances to recover lost files?

Thanks in advance

xserve, Mac OS X (10.5.6), xsan

    In the root of the filesystem there normally is a folder "lost+found", in which files with strange names are found. These are the files cvfsck has collected in the recovering of the filesystemnames. It is sometimes not possible to recover the original file name and location. So this is the only way for cvfsck to give them back.

    If you think the content of these files is allright, you can rename and relocate them.
