Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete The Truncated Backup File

Oct 28, 2010

I was doing a big backup system this morning (in Ubuntu 10.10) which was taking some time, when there was an urgent task I needed to see to, so I rashly stopped the backup with CTRL-C. Later I found that this left the recipient directory with an input-output problem, so I could not delete the truncated backup file (or any other file in the directory). I tried all sorts of chmod procedures etc., including using the usually very successful RESCUE CD from a USB pen, but nothing seemed to cure the input-output problem.

In the end, in desperation, I copied all the other files into a new directory, and then deleted the original directory from Windows 7. (I use a multiple boot system.) Windows obviously does not observe the same permissions as Linux, and it obeyed without demure! So all is now well.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Simple Backup Folder From Trash

Jul 17, 2010

I'm a beginner at backing up my Ubuntu system, but I've set Simple Backup to do a backup once a week. I deleted the oldest of these files, but now it's sitting in my Trash and I can't empty it. I get a permission denied error for the folders within the backup folder in the trash, yet I can't restore the folder either - Ubuntu says it 'failed to determine the original path' for the folder. I've just discovered this in Xubuntu Jaunty, but I'm confident the same will happen in any other WM I choose (I have several installed - I like variety ).

It's not a huge file, but it's hanging out there and I'd like to get it either deleted or restored. Possibly I oughtn't to have deleted it in the first place (it usually lives in /var/backup, which I can't access except as root). The files, which I probably deleted /as/ root, show up in my user trash rather than root's trash. I found the trash in ~/.local/share/Trash/files, but I'm not sure if just deleting them as root would be a good.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete A File

Feb 6, 2011

My problem is with a file that I can't delete, or move for that matter.

Now I tried to right click it and move to the trash, but that option isn't highlighted, same for the rename. When I try to move it, it says the file does not exist. Here is what is says exactly:

Error stating file '/home/ashley/Desktop/Ed/dads files/TV Shows/isis (joanna cameron)/jpeg': No such file or directory

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Certain File From Wastebasket?

Feb 23, 2011

I have a problem deleting a certian file from a NTFS format 1TB USB HDD.

I attempted to MOVE the file (x.avi) to another directory on the same drive. On the MOVE process I accidently cancelled it. I then COPIED the file to another directory, this copied fine so i just need to delete the original x.avi.note; when I now attempt to move the original x.avi I get an error message: "Error while moving "x.avi". There was an error moving the file into /media/1TB/Movies. More details: Error moving file: Numerical result out of range. (I'm assuming a corrupted file)?

Lastly, every time i attempt to delete x.avi, it puts the file in the wastebasket but doesnt delete it; Every delete attempt makes a new file in the wastebasket (e.g. x, x.1, x.2, x.3, x.5 etc etc).

All other files/folders are fine its just this 1 folder/file.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Delete Folder (.fuse_hidden* File)?

May 30, 2011

I am running the latest version of Ubuntu (Ubuntu 11.04) which i setup as a dual boot OS with Windows XP SP3. I was listening to my MP3s using the Banshee music player on Ubuntu. My MP3s reside on an NTFS drive (which I mounted in Ubuntu to hear the MP3s). Via the Banshee player I deleted all songs from a particular folder and thought nothing of it until I later booted into Windows.

I saw the folder that had the songs I had deleted the songs and and thought I'd delete the folder as well except that I couldn't. It said the file might be corrupted. I logged backed into Ubuntu (Windows XP was shutdown not hibernated as I remember hearing that on Hibernating, you can't properly delete/copy files on Windows partitions). In Ubuntu too, I wasn't able to delete this folder - either via the Folder explorer or via terminal. I see a file named ".fuse_hidden0000041b00000017" along with some other files I had deleted (in Turquoise colour). I didn't see any posts in this forum with a help on resolving this issue

Server :: Amanda Unable To Copy Backup File From Holding Disk To Tapes

May 14, 2010

I have some issue with my amanda backup server, which is connecting with Scalar Quantum i500 via FC. I got the error as below 3 days ago.
These dumps were to tape 000289.
*** A TAPE ERROR OCCURRED: [No more writable valid tape found].

Normally I will load the proper tapes and run the amflush to push stuff from the holding disk to tapes manually. However this time amflush in this case did not help, Amanda immediately responded with an out of tape error again.

Meanwhile I got some errors from dmesg as well
st3: Error 18 (sugg. bt 0x0, driver bt 0x0, host bt 0x0).

Debian :: Backup Purge Script - `/mnt/backup/subfolder': No Such File Or Directory

This script simply deletes files older than a certain age (in this case 7 days) from a certain location; I use it to purge old backups nightly, and it works as expected:

# delete backups older than 7 days
find /mnt/backup/*  -mtime +7 -exec rm -Rf {} ;

The problem is, every morning I get an email with an error message something like this:

Programming :: Create/delete Temp/backup Files Through A Shell Script?

Dec 31, 2008

I have a shell script that need to create some files:

1) backup files of user passed in file ( that will be written by this shell ).

2) temp files that the shell will create and later delete/remove.

This shell script will be used from my local dir ( I am not a super or a sysadmin ). Users of this shell will call this script to run on their local files in their respective directories. When my script runs, it errors with the following:

cp: cannot create regular file `./listfile.txt.backup': Permission denied
/home/myUser/tools/myShellScript: line 12: listfile.txt: Permission denied

for the temp I was able to avoid this error by creating the temp file in the /tmp directory. All I want is for this shell script to run, create/modify/backup files in user's local dirs.

The user dir has the following permission:

drwxr-xr-x testDir

the file that needs to be backed-up has:

-rw-r--r-- listfile.txt.

Ubuntu :: Recover Brasero Truncated Files?

Nov 22, 2010

I used a bootable usb (Ubuntu 10.10) to backup files from an infected windows machine. I made backup DVD's using Brasero and disabled full windows compatibility when burning them to disc. The really dumb part was I didn't check the DVD's before I reinstalled windows on the drive I was backing up. They were all there, I assumed they were ok. The files on the DVD's (mix of doc, xls, jpg, etc.) won't open in windows or Linux. Anybody know of a way to recover them? From what I've been reading, it seems like I'm screwed, but I thought I'd check with the experts. Is there a specific way Brasero/Linux changes the file, and can that info can be used to change it back? I assume it just cuts the name/header to 64 characters and I'm SOL. I'm going to see what diskdoctor's recovery software can get back from the hard drive.

Ubuntu :: Files Get Truncated On Write When No Space Left

Aug 3, 2010

If I run low on free space, and I/system need to write something, then the files are just truncated. With no way to revert to their previous content.

First I installed the Windows on the VirtualBox, it sucked up all free space, so I couldn't even login to the system afterwards.

Then I, once again, silently ran out of free space, and my php editor broke. Later I discovered that it tried to write its config files, but failed, truncating them all. I lost a half a year of configurations, custom color scheme and custom code snippets.

Then one day the system just froze. Later I understood, there wasn't enough free space for it to run.

Today I was working on my php script, for like the second day, when, again, free space ran out, so with another file-save, I got a wonderfully impressing blank php-file. It was auto-reloaded from the external change, which was failure to write to file, obviously, so no ctrl-z worked, leaving me with two days work wasted and an urge to hit the monitor

My questions are:
1 How can this be fixed? Besides the obvious awesome fix "watch your free space, buddy".
2 Could somebody explain why these sorts of things happen, just so I know why the ultra-safe and durable 'nix operating system wants to destroy itself sometimes?
3 Anyone else encountered this issue?

Security :: Root's .bash_history Has Been Truncated To 0

Feb 9, 2010

I have a recently installed Ubuntu Karmic with standard packages. I enabled automatic security updates and manually updated every package once. I have the root account enabled. At ~1am GMT my .bash_history file for the root account has been truncated to zero. I think the PC may have crashed (no keyboard, mouse, etc, but still some HD activity) at around this time. The disk isn't full, but this is a fresh install, I do not have direct net access (NAT) and I have only visited a limited number of web sites.

Ubuntu Networking :: SSL Handshake Failed - Secure Connection Truncated

Jun 16, 2010

I'm having a problem with Subversion. When I try an "svn up" it gives me this error message:
SSL handshake failed: Secure connection truncated
I'm running Ubuntu 10/4 but I also had this problem with 9/10. Does anyone know what this error message means? It appears to be an SSL problem but it's not clear to me what exactly the problem is. I do not have this problem with svn on my other office computer, nor my home computer. FYI, I'm running subversion on the Regina project.

The full error message is this:
svn up
svn: OPTIONS of '[URL]': SSL handshake failed: Secure connection truncated [URL]. Although I don't think there's anything specific to Regina about this svn problem, as I mentioned, I can "svn up" from home, or from my other office computer.
