File are hidden in WinXP after chmod -R 755 (telnet)
We have a Sun Cobalt Qube 3 internet/e-mail server. On this server you can make a group (like guest-share) which can be mounted in WinXP as a networkdisk. So all clients can access this share with their file explorer.
Yesterday I received an email that one person could not access a certain file in a certain folder. It seems to have to do something with the long pathname (above 256 characters) but I didn't knew that at that time. The only thing I could think of where permissions which were wrong on that share. So what I did was a telnet session (from my home) and as su the command:
chmod -R 755 \guest-share\
After this all files where 755. But....the next day I was called that all files where deleted. They could only see the folder names but the files were gone. So I looked and it seems that when I used the explorer I didn't see the files. But with Commander (which also shows hidden files) it seems that all files were changed to the attributes archive hidden and system. I can't change these attributes with explorer of windows commander. It simply doesn't work.
How can I make all file visible again so that everyone can access these files again?
