Is it safe to remove lost+found from database listing?

Solution Unverified - Updated -


  • Created a logical volume for MySQL Database.

  • Formatted this LV with ext4, but now a lost+found directory is in /var/lib/mysql.

  • Is it good idea to remove lost+found from here?

  mysql> show databases;
  | Database            |
  | information_schema  |
  | #mysql50#lost+found |
  | mysql               |
  | phpmyadmin          |
