General :: List Folders By The Number Of Files Recursively

Aug 11, 2011

Is there any Linux application for finding the folders with the most number of files? baobab sorts folders by their total size, I'm looking for a tool that lists folders by the total number of files in it.

The reason I'm looking is because copying tens of thousands of small files is excruciatingly slow (much slower than copying a few large files of the same size), so I want to archive or delete those folders with high file counts that that will be slowing down the copying (it won't speed things up now, but it would be faster when I need to move/copy it again in the future).

General :: Shell Script To Delete Folders And Files Dynamically And Recursively?

Jun 7, 2010

I have an archive directory that needs to be cleaned up once per quarter. The top level (/data/archive/*) directory names change daily, as well as the subdirectories and the filenames (the application names everything according to date). Also, there are two top level directories, bin and incoming, that we can't touch. I want to write a shell script that loops through the 15 or 20 top level directories and deletes all files and subdirectories older than 3 days (skipping the bin and incoming folders). Can someone get me started on a script? I am kinda new to shell scripting.

Ubuntu :: Delete All Files/folders Except Those Specified?

Jul 26, 2011

Although I've been using Ubuntu for a while, I haven't really done any scripting thus far,but now find myself needing to do (what I thought was) some fairly simple stuff.However, despite much searching, I have been unable to find a solution to my problem.I need a script which will delete all of the files/folders from a directory except those I specify. From the command line, I am able to use:rm -r !(constant|system|*.msh|)

which works fine, deleting everything except the 'constant' and 'system' folders (and everything in them) and any files ending in '.msh'. I have tried to put this into a script file, specifying to use the bash shell, and escaping the required characters, but I just get the message 'cannot find !(constant|*.msh)'.I have read that using the find command may be a better way of doing it, but so far I have not been able to make the command work in the way which I need (I have easily been able to delete ALL the files/folders in the directory!).

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (, installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or
have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.

Ubuntu :: Delete Folders Or Files On NTFS Partition Not A Option To Move To Waste Basket

Nov 24, 2010

10.10 on a ext4 partition. I deleted a folder that sat on a NTFS partition that I use as data storage. I note that if I delete folders or files on this NTFS partition there is not the option to move to waste basket - it is just deleted. If the folder still exists on the hard drive (has not been over written) I may be able to retrieve it - but where could it be? On the NTFS partition?
