Well, possibly. Many of the files could be rescued off the damaged root 
file system, even if the directory structure was shot. What file(s) 
would I be looking for? There's 18487 numbered directories in lost+found 
with a large number of subdirectories - but if I have a name to go on, I 
may be able to find something useful in there.
