    No such file or directory (error 2)

    Anybody know how I can easily fix the ./shadow_before_purge.txt file? I cannot rm or mv the file.
    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.

    r03701# cd /.shadow
    r03701# ls -l
    ls: ./shadow_before_purge.txt not found: No such file or directory (error 2)

    Give us some background. What file is that? Is that a file in some software or just an example you have taken? What exactly are you trying to do?

    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.
