Hello! Great little package! I wanted to report a few extra false positives.
On my setup (GPT+UEFI) this script lists all system UEFI programs (*.efi) and ancillary files that reside in /boot/EFI/ directory. I have windows 7 efi loader there, and it lists it along with an entire /boot/EFI/Microsoft/ content. I think it wouldn't be unreasonable to exclude /boot/EFI/ directory in it's entirety from search.

@enunes - So be it!

I mean: the output could be just sent to stdout and the user would decide whether to pipe it to less or file or whatever.

thanks for the script and package.

I have a suggestion: maybe lostfiles shouldn't pipe the output to less by itself :)
I had a lot of files of files in the output and I'd rather output it to a file rather than keeping that terminal stuck on less.
