Chances are that if you found this page through a Google search, you're probably looking for information on how addressing and routing actually works, without getting too deep into the complicated, underlying logic and binary math that serves as the foundationg for modern networking. At some point, I was looking for just this kind of information and ended up spending untold hours poring through texts trying to put it all together. So my goal with this article, is to save you as much time as possible. However, because it's so fundamental to routing, avoiding math entirely won't be possible.

This data is still using up space, but it isn't accessible by any normal means.

If you tell fsck to repair the filesystem, it will turn these almost-deleted files back into files. The thing is, the file had a name and location once, but that information is no longer available. So fsck deposits the file in a specific directory, called lost+found (after lost and found property).
