I would recommend to add 
-x /tmp/lost+found
because when people use /tmp 
on a separate partition this directory 
should not be deleted
Comment 2 Miloslav Trmač 2004-12-21 18:20:51 EST
Thanks for the suggestion.

tmpwatch actually skips directories named "lost+found" owned
by root automatically, so adding an explicit exclusion is
not necessary.
This was not documented in the man page; the man page
should be fixed in tmpwatch-2.9.2-1.
