NAME
       git-lost-found - Recover lost refs that luckily have not yet been pruned

SYNOPSIS
       git lost-found

DESCRIPTION
       NOTE: this command is deprecated. Use git-fsck(1) with the option --lost-found instead.

       Finds dangling commits and tags from the object database, and creates refs to them in the
       .git/lost-found/ directory. Commits and tags that dereference to commits are stored in
       .git/lost-found/commit, and other objects are stored in .git/lost-found/other.

OUTPUT
       Prints to standard output the object names and one-line descriptions of any commits or
       tags found.

EXAMPLE
       Suppose you run git tag -f and mistype the tag to overwrite. The ref to your tag is
       overwritten, but until you run git prune, the tag itself is still there.

	   $ git lost-found
	   [1ef2b196d909eed523d4f3c9bf54b78cdd6843c6] GIT 0.99.9c
	   ...

       Also you can use gitk to browse how any tags found relate to each other.

	   $ gitk $(cd .git/lost-found/commit && echo ??*)

       After making sure you know which the object is the tag you are looking for, you can
       reconnect it to your regular refs hierarchy by using the update-ref command.

	   $ git cat-file -t 1ef2b196
	   tag
	   $ git cat-file tag 1ef2b196
	   object fa41bbce8e38c67a218415de6cfa510c7e50032a
	   type commit
	   tag v0.99.9c
	   tagger Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net> 1131059594 -0800

	   GIT 0.99.9c

	   This contains the following changes from the "master" branch, since
	   ...
	   $ git update-ref refs/tags/not-lost-anymore 1ef2b196
	   $ git rev-parse not-lost-anymore
	   1ef2b196d909eed523d4f3c9bf54b78cdd6843c6
