Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I had an aborted journal and e2fsck was ran before the journal was dropped, and now i have 17GB worth of what's probably mostly JPGs in various folders with names of the inodes they came from i believe. Since i only have CLI access to the server, i was going to share the lost+found then copy all the lost+found contents to my windows machine with the GUI to try to sort through them and see if i can usefully recover anything to where it actually belongs. You guys understand now?
Also, my OS is bootable now, i'm more just trying to see if i can put some of that data back to where it properly belongs. which seems like there's no good way to do it other than going through each thing one by one and trying to find the proper home for it now.
If you have SSH access to that machine; you can use a tool such as WinSCP (free) and connect securely to the machine via a "GUI" interface. Then you can browse your lost+found directory and move back/forth whatever you wish to move.
Would be easier to configure than a samba share as well
