    What is the /lost+found directory good for? It seems to be empty.

    It's used by e2fsck (similar to scandisk in MS Windows) for orphaned data blocks (if the filesystem is corrupt).

    If e2fsck finds corrupt files that cannot be repaired it puts the parts that can be saved into the /lost+found directory (with a generic name).
