    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

    Any suggestion

    Hi alejandroye,

    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

    than do

    $ 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...
