Programming :: Shell Script To Automatically Delete Files With The Same Name As The Parent Directory?

Mar 18, 2010

I am facing a problem in Windows due to a virus called Newfolder.exe which creats files with the same name as it's parent directory and an extension .exe and this happens for every directory in the entire hierarchy in the infected pen drive. The antivirus detects them, but is sucking slow. So I thought this is a good opportunity to use the concepts of the all mighty shell script to remove those as they follow the same pattern. Say my complete path is

Code:

/home/pkd/fol1/

The virus would have created an file with complete paths

Quote:

/home/pkd/fol1.exe

If fol1 has two more directories fol11 and fol12 Then there would be two more .exe(virus created) in the following path

Quote:

/home/pkd/fol11/fol11.exe
/home/pkd/fol12/fol12.exe

General :: Make A Bash Script That Automatically Delete The Home Folders?

Feb 15, 2011

I am administrating a lab in a university and every semester we need to delete all the home folders of the accounts for the next semester. I would like to make a bash script that does this automatically and having trouble with it. Note that I am writing my very first bash script. What I need to do is make a script to delete the following:

Delete everything in /home/$exp$num/$dir
when "exp" could be either "rt", "ic" or "sp".
"num" could run from 1(single digit) to 45 and dir is "profile" and "work".

This is what I tried to write:

Code:

#!/bin/sh
cd /home
for exp in "rt ic sp"
do

[code]....

What seems to be the problem is the reading of "$exp$num" as a joint expression.

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 ...

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?
