[opensuse] How to Recover a folder structure from an Ext4 partition that was repaired with fsck
Hello

Looking for help on this ():

I've got a PC with a 320GB hdd. And this is the partition structure:

sda1 - - - /boot - - - (200 MB) - - - Ext4
sda2 - - - swap - - (8 GB) - - - - - Swap
sda3 - - - / - - - - - - (20 GB) - - - - Ext4
sda4 - - - /home - - - (270 GB) - - - Ext4

The HOME partition was corrupted. Then I plug the disk in another PC, via USB adapter, and ran:

fsck -t ext4 -fy /dev/sdb4

The partition was successfully mounted and all the files were recovered, but they appear in numbered folders, under <lost+found> folder.

--> Now my question:
Is there any way I could recover the original folder structure?
(there are plenty of files, and it is a huge task to re-catalog them in a new structure)


Thanks in advance
Kyma
