General :: How To Delete Multiple Hidden Files

Mar 17, 2010

I am using ubuntu 8.04 and have a separate home partition. While setting it up I had a few failures and was left with several directories containing many hidden files which I can't seem to delete. The man pages for 'rm' didn't seem to provide the answer either.

Is there a flag or escape sequence that will allow 'rm' to delete these files?

General :: Recursively Cp All Directories, Files And Hidden Files?

May 17, 2010

Ubuntu 10.04

I want to copy all directories, files, and hidden files and hidden directories with one command. I want these items to replace any same items in the target directory.

I have tried several things, such as:

cp -r *
cp -aR *

but I only seem to get visible files and directories. Obviously, I am missing something. (A brain, probably....)

May 23, 2011

I had Windows on my machine but I decided to try Ubuntu 11.04. I kept my partitions where I store music, movies and stuff and it is OK, I can open anything, but I can't open the files that were in a hidden folder. I see then, I can browse my Windows hidden directories, but I can't open the files!

Is there a way to make the system display hidden files in the home folder when you open it? I know you can select "Show Hidden Files" in the view menu but having to do this every time you want to see or access hidden files and folders is annoying!

Ubuntu :: How To Find / Delete Unused Hidden Config Folders

Oct 12, 2010

I recently moved to a new machine, and I copied my entire home folder across. This included lots of hidden (starting with '.') folders, and in many cases they are config folders for packages which I have not installed on the new machine. They are taking up space, so I would like to delete them, but to go through manually and figure out which ones I need would be very laborious. Is there a way to find, and perhaps delete, config folders for packages that are not installed?

Ubuntu :: After Files Deleted Still Shows Up As Full - Shown In Hidden Trash Files

Mar 9, 2011

I have a Kingston 8gb Datatraveler that has been giving me troubles lately. For some reason after I delete files from it it still shows up as full and the files are shown in the hidden trash files. How do I get rid of these files? I can't delete them as they just show back up. Also, I tried to format the drive with gparted and it won't unmount. When I right click and select information, at the bottom it says: Unable to find mount point. Unable to read the contents of the file system. Because of this, some operations may be unavailable.

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)

General :: Can I Delete Files Created By Others In A Directory I Own

Jul 23, 2010

I created a directory somewhere with permissions rwxrwxr-x so that other users in my group can create files and directories in it.

I do need to be able to delete the contents in this "public" directory, but it seems that while I am able to remove any files in this directory I cannot remove and subdirectories under it.

Is there a way to remove such subdirectories owned by others under a directory owned by me?

General :: Loop Through A DIR To Delete Files By Inode

Feb 9, 2010

I have a directory that contains some files (over a 1,000) that have a '' in the filename. There are also some good files that I need to keep. therefore I need a script to delete based on inode.

What I have thus far:
list="$(ls -il /opt/PC/log/*RPOUT*.xml)" #this gives me the list
# I need to get the inode of.
for i in $list
do
find . -inum $i -exec rm -i {} ;
echo "delete file" $i >> /home/me/tmp/del_inode.txt
done
echo 'completed'

I know this is not right ... what I know is is the 'find' is. I need to loop through the $list gleaning inodes to get all the files with '' delete. I'm not sure how. The $i gives me the whole line. I just want the first position. set $() does not seem to work ...
