getting block hide folders/files
After upgrading mandriva I am not seeing the files on a hardrive, how can I fix this?
I had a mandrake 10.1 in a small computer with 2 hard drive, hd1 and hd2, where all documents and data are in the hd2. I know the data is still there but I am getting all folders lock and hidden files, this is happening after I upgrade to mandriva.
When I use "ls -tl" I just see the folder with the letter "b" Block hide". My question is how can I solve this issue and free all this folders and files
Your current version of mandriva my be using ext4 file system type & the hd2 hard drive may be using ext3.
Using a terminal console
$ fdisk -l
obtain drive location of hd2
create a directory, say called disktest under your home directory
$ mkdir /home/username/disktest
$ sudo mount -t ext3 /dev/hda2 /home/username/disktest
The other point to check on is the permission on the hd2 drive.
I hope this is of help.Sometimes all you have to do is just wait...
