I cannot > ./shadow_before_purge.txt the file either.
I suspect it has something to do with corruption of the indexing on the hard drive, but that's just a guess. I don't think it an ownership/permission problem.

It is just a flat file, I'm getting an error. "ls: ./shadow_before_purge.txt not found: No such file or directory (error 2)"
Somehow the directory "thinks" it lives there, but the file doesn't exist in that directory.
I'm trying to rsync those files to another machine, but can't because that file doesn't exist is that directory.
