I shutdown my computer and may not have waited for the savefile to save before removing the flashdrive. The result is that when I try and boot off the flashdrive, I get a kernel panic. All that is in the savefile now is a very full Lost and Found directory. Here's what lost & found looks like. The question is how can I get it back working again?

Make a new pupsave. (start with pfix=ram)
Or do you really want to rescue it?

BTW
You should not have a big pupsave in the first place.
Keep your savefile slim and healthy (shinobar)
Second, keep a copy of a good pupsave, as fallback.

I don't know how to repair it, sorry.

If RickGT351 boots with pfx=ram then perhaps he can mount the savefile as a loop device and use e2fsck to repair it. I forget the exact details of how to do this though.
