How to acces the " lost+found " folder
This is what I did: I touch the /etc/fstab file and I ruin it, so, I had to reinstall ubuntu in another partition, but, the partition where used to be my old and ruin ubuntu is now with just one folder " lost+found " it is about 2Gb, but I cannot access it, when I open it, it seems to be empty!
How can I open it, to recovery my data????

lost+found is a directory that fsck uses to store any unconnected files or directories it finds after a dirty shutdown. It sounds like your reinstall emptied the partition, and you'll need to use your backups to recover the data.
BTW, doing a complete reinstall because of one corrupted file is a bit extreme - why didn't you ask on here for how to fix that first?

Well, I didnt expect that all my data became into a new and strange folder (lost+found). It is a quite big folder.... it is really impossible to open it???
