Fedora :: Can't Delete Files From Photorec

Aug 29, 2011

I just used photorec to recover files from a 40GB laptop HDD. I saved the files to my video folder in my Home folder. Now my home folder is full. When I login to my computer, in about 30 second I get this error:

Quote: Oh no! Something has gone wrong. A problem has occurred and the system cant recover. Now I tried logging out, restarting, etc etc. Still get the error. I also did

I cant delete the files from photorec because the are protected. And I cant start up firefox or thunderbird

General :: Remove Multiple Photorec Files (recup_dir.)?

Jan 13, 2010

I was doing some data recovery with Photorec and by the time I was done I have over 700 folders (recup_dir.).The only solution I was able to apply was the one posted by pljvaldez on this site dated 04-09-08, 09:01 AM. After doing the same thing for at least 70 times I decided to ask, so, is there anyone that knows how to delete multiple folders at the same time.

Ubuntu :: Deleted Photorec Backup Files Taking Up Disk Space?

Mar 13, 2011

I used photorec to recover lost files and it brought up 70gb worth of files, when I was done looking through them I deleted these files. but these files still seem to be taking up my disk space. When I try to access my trash bin with root I get a message that reads...."The folder contents could not be displayed. sorry, could not display all the contents of "trash": operation not supported." if I open my trash bin when I'm not in root, the bin is empty.

How do I free up my disk space?

Ubuntu :: Rsync --delete Doesn't Delete Superflous Files

Sep 25, 2010

I am trying to use an old box as backup server. I have tried a couple of possibilities along the lines of:

Quote:

rsync -a --delete --progress --log-file=/home/$USER/info.txt -e ssh /home /etc root@192.168.0.106:/mnt/back

The problem is it does not delete files that has been removed from my local system?
I run the command as root on the local system.

(I realize I should properly not ssh into the server as the server's root but I'm having trouble with the permissions and I want to make sure everything else works before messing around with it)

Fedora :: Can't Delete Certain Files From A Mac Drive?

Jan 27, 2010

I am using FC11 and have an external USB drive attached which was originally formatted and used with OS X. I'm pretty sure it's an HFS+ filesystem, but fdisk-l simply reports "unknown". I moved a ton of files to it from an older OS X drive, including a bunch of backups that were done with Time Machine in OS X.

Now I've moved them all back to where I want them (onto an EXT2 formatted drive) and I'm trying to clear those Time Machine files off the HFS+. The drive will ultimately be used with a Mac, so I don't want to wipe the whole disk (aside from the fact I have a ton of other stuff on there that I don't want to move).

The problem is that I cannot get FC11 to delete the Time Machine files. When I try to delete the top level folder ('rm -rf topfolder'), the command looks like it's running (and goes load crazy on the CPU), but I left it running all night, then cancelled it this morning, no files were deleted. It just sits there. When I try to delete folders a little lower in the tree using 'rm -rf myfolder' I get an error telling me the folder is not empty. When I go down to the lowest level folder, I can only find DS_Store and .localized files in it. The properties are rather odd... output of ls -als is this:

Fedora Hardware :: Unable To Delete Files From Cowon S9?

Jul 22, 2010

I recently bought a cowon S9 mp3 player because of its capabilities of playing ogg music files. I decided I wanted to remove some music files to replace with others bur after supposedly deleting them I found that there was 10gb still in use. After opening the folder for the cowon s9 and viewing the hidden files I found a "Trash 500" folder with the songs I thought I had deleted. The problem now is I can't delete this folder, even if I open the folder as root, it doesn't allow me to delete the unwanted files.

Fedora :: GThumb Image Viewer Delete - Files Moved To Trash

Mar 4, 2010

When I am deleting pictures using gThumb image viewer it asks "The selected images will be moved to Trash, are you sure?" And if I press "yes" button - it moves message to ~/.Trash, can it be configured to move them into "real" trash? I have created symbolic link and it solved part of my problems, but files "restore" option is unavailable to files which were moved in to trash by this method.

Software :: Program PHOTOREC For A Crashed EXT3?

Feb 28, 2010

I actually used dd

Code:
dd if=myimageof16mboffat16.img of=/dev/sda_my2gbext3
Yeah, I killed my disk, I was tired, or I dont know the crap what I did that day.

After several times using Photorec, it is basic program that has no other better alternative. It can try to recover files. But one is limited by: - one cannot select a new type of files, example avi extensino isnt in there even and one has a limited possibilities of files - it is not recovering folders, because it doesnt care. it cannot create a new *.img (raw or gz) file of a crashed harddisk, *.img that is readable my mounting + loop one have to have a larger size harddisk to recover your data one has to seek the whole harddisk, and the user cannot have a list of files, and then give the possibility to recover (copy) only the one wanted to be recovered photorec does not recover the filenames even, Or is there better program / code from Freebsd or MacOsX or windows (all platform) that we could compile? I mean that cannot be. In Windows there is so many apps and disk utilities. something exactly like this for ext3:[URL]..

Ubuntu :: Photorec Rovered File Directories Permissions?

May 4, 2010

I recently accidentally deleted a wrong directory of images from a USB memory stick, which I managed to successfully recover using Photorec . Photorec created a couple of directories (which I asked it to put in Documents), which i was then able to re copy back onto the USB disc. My problem now however is that I do not need that almost 4GB of files on my PC but I cannot delete them since the files are all root owner, and being somewhat new to ubuntu I am not sure of how to go about changing the permissions and deleting these files.

Ubuntu :: Recover Lost Data From NTFS Partition Using Testdisk/Photorec?

Mar 8, 2010

My main partition having all my data like movies, music, files,etc has become inaccessible. Its file system was NTFS. Due to some recent resizing using GParted, the partition as well as my WIndows 7 OS has become unbootable due to some errors. The data partition's file system has become unknown. I don't care much about the OS but I would like to recover my drive. I am trying to achieve this using Testdisk and Photorec but haven't met with much success so far. The main problem is I can see my partition and all my files through Testdisk but I am not able to copy them to another drive. When I try to copy the option I get is of copying them to the DVD and not to any other partition.

Ubuntu :: How To Delete Saved Files On Log Out

Apr 11, 2010

I'm setting up a single stand-alone computer in my classroom to be used by my students at the school where I teach. I've installed Ubuntu, as it smashes Windoze out of the court every time.

I want the students to be able to log on to the computer using just one account: 'Student'. This computer will be attached to a printer so they can type up and print oOfice documents,web pages, etc. However, once they log out, I want any files they might have saved (such as a word processed document) to be removed/deleted from the account so that when another pupil logs on to the 'Student' account they start with a clean slate. I suppose you could call it a sort-of Kiosk account.

How can I get Ubuntu to clear any saved documents on log-out?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Some Files

Jun 11, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I have a small HDD and I noticed that the weight of the folder .Trash-0/lost+found on my computer was of 2.6 gb.

I tried to delete the files in this folder, but it seems impossible. Even with using sudo I can't delete them because I am not authorized to do so. The files in the folder are quite weird, there are folder and files named like this: #7614692, #7613635 etc. Their groups and their users are also quite weird: -1933023744, 1624453254... Even from a live cd it is not possible to delete them. Also the date of the files is ****ed up, example:

- last access: "mar. 13 juil. 1943 15:26:11 CEST"
- last modification: "mer. 12 oct. 2022 15:59:51 CEST"

I recently upgraded this partition from ext3 to ext4, so I would guess that it comes from here. But I don't know if these files where there before or not.

Ubuntu :: Delete XP But Leave Files?

Jul 15, 2010

I've got a computer with numerous media files,(video and music). It's a dual boot Windows XP , Ubuntu 10.04 install.I use it as a media box for my large LCD TV. I was wondering if anyone else has deleted the Windows system files and program folders and left the media files. Edit grub deleting Windows XP and leaving the large number of media files alone. I don't want to spend the time to backup and transfer, as it would be to time consuming. I don't want to bork the system just to clean out XP.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can I Delete Old / Usr Files?

Jul 21, 2010

I have recently done a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04 [and it is all going very nicely unlike some others] on my dual boot Dell Dimension 5100.After seeing some advice about advanced partitioning I decided to expand my partition table during the 10.04 install process from swap, / and /home (where I keep My Documents) to swap, /, /home, /var, /tmp and /usr, all of which was achieved without problem.I am now getting "Low Disk Space" messages on my home partition (488 MB remaining!!!) I have emptied the trash and cleaned up any obviously large but surplus files. (I did find two that concern me but they aren't HUGE and I am unsure of what they do: file-meta.db and file-index.db in /home/john/.cache/tracker/ which are 290 MB and 108 MB respectively, last modified five months ago and something to do with SQLite3.)

Anyway, am I right in saying that my new /var, /tmp and particularly /usr partitions now contain some of what was previously held on / and /home, leaving old files that can be removed? If so, what is now surplus and how do I delete it safely? I had a bit of a dig but, as the properties in Nautilus of, for example, /usr do not indicate what partition it is on, I can't safely tell what is current and what is old.
