About the Lost and Found directory
Authored by: sprale on Aug 25, '09 01:33:27PM

I recently used iPartition to remove a third partition and resize the second to consume that free space. Upon reboot I had the 'lost+found' folder at the root. It was about 2.4Gb, some of the files appear to be parts of the iWeb templates.

I was unable to repair permissions, in addition to many other application issues, from internal or external OS.

I copied the 'com.apple.pkg.BaseSystem.bom' from the folder '/Library/Receipts/' on a similar system that was functioning properly. It seems to have done the trick. Disk Utility can now repair permissions and verify disks again.
