Debian :: Can't Find Orphan Files From Deleted User?

May 10, 2010

I did a cleanup on old user ids on my server several months ago. One of the user ids was 1005.. When i check the quota page on webmin, it says that userid 1005 is using 8.40 GB on the system, but I can't find those files anywhere! The home folder was deleted with the user ids, so I'm not sure what the username was to begin with.If I check the passwd file - there is no 1005 listed. So i did a find / uid 1005 and I tried a find / -nouser command.. Neither list files owned by 1005. How can I find where those 8.4 GB of files are?edit: when I do a du -sch * to find space being used.. there is only 5 folders within the /home that could have 8G in there .. (assumeing du -sch shows all files, including hidden).. du -sch * from / shows only possible location is in the /home folder

Ubuntu :: Deleted Files On USB Drive Not Actually Deleted?

Jun 7, 2010

I searched the forum with various terms and didn't find anything, so my apologies if this is a common and/or newbie problem.It seems that when I have a USB driveplugged in to switch the files around, those that I delete are still taking up space. I first noticed it with a Chinese MP3 player and thought it was the player being crappy. I could still play all the songs that were supposedly gone. Today, I noticed it with a little thumb drive that I've had for years. I plugged it into my husband's computer running winXP, and the files showed up in a weird, unusable form. I was able to delete them for real.

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Moved Files / User - Can't Find Any Original File

Dec 31, 2010

Initially, I was trying to get around a Nautilus log in error. Using this, I was able to log in, but I entered what seems to be a perfectly clean version of Ubuntu...with no access to my files. [URL].... Now, I can't seem to find any of my original files. Some of the commands I entered in the terminal included:


I'm afraid that I may have deleted the files, or have moved them to another user or someplace on the drive I can't see.

Ubuntu :: Moving Files To A Pendrive Renders 0 Bytes Files And Files Gets Deleted

Jun 10, 2011

I get a SD card. Put in the SD reader. It's empty. I go to my super-important-pictures-to-a-monthly-relatory folder and select all files. Select them for MOVE. Paste them on the SD card. When the move/paste process is finished, i click on the "Eject" button on top of the SD card name. Card's ejected. I can't access the card anymore. I take out the card and put on my other computer. From 300 pictures, there are only 10 available, the remaining ones are there, but with 0bytes and unrecoveable. I panic. I go back to my main computer, my pictures are not there anymore. The pictures were on the Home folder. I panic again. I reset the computer and boot on the LiveCD. I install foremost, scalpel, photorec and about everything till my USB drive complains about being filled up. I run everything and I can't recover my files. I'm in the danger of getting fired. Things like that makes Windows sounds more appealing. When you securely remove a pendrive, things get REALLY pasted there before screwing everything up with a removal.

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.

Jan 13, 2010

On a KDE4 environment after downloading some music from rapidshare with JDownloader the archives self-extracted with the symbol in some of the file names. Those files couldn't be renamed or deleted, the file manager said that the files didn't exist - very weird. The files should have had some swedish characters in their file names. Now I'm stuck with those files on my machine. Anyone knows how to get rid of them?

Debian :: How To Create User Hidden Files

May 30, 2011

I have lately been converting all my Ubuntu installs to Debian. Kind of like a revival meeting. Basically I am wiping the ~/.whatever files from the /home partition and saving any that might be handy later. Save any files from the / partition that I might want something from (/var/cache/apt/archives for packages installed, /usr/share/backgrounds and so forth). The last one I am working on is a little different. It is the first install (successful) install I ever did, Ubuntu 8.04, and it is ext3 on one partition. I did the above things as on the others but it was all on one partition. Fired up my netinstall disk for squeeze and installed on 2 partitions. One new one for / ext4 and the old partition not formatted, mounted as /home on ext3.

Did a base install with only the system utilities added by the taskel business at the end of install (like always). Rebooted to that install. Every thing seems to work at the basic level. My passwords worked, both for the text user login and then the root password when I ran su so that I could purge nfs-common (it has given me problems on every install for some reason). Came back here to my usual Debian testing install, fired up boinc and then the chroot environment for the new convert. Installed gnome-desktop-environment and some other things, all from a list that I have used before in just this manner.

Go back to boot to the new one, every thing rolls fine, get the GDM3 login, enter password. "Can't access ICEauthorization". Have to Ctrl+Alt+b out. Back here I check the /home/tom directory for that install and hit Ctrl+H and there are no hidden files. Run "dpkg-reconfigure -a" to no effect. Try adding my user again and that, of coarse dose not work because the user already exists. One other thing is that if I boot to recovery it does show the message to login or hit Ctrl+D but does not stop with a prompt. Shows a couple other things and stops. Ctrl+Alt+B to get out once and had to unplug once.

Fedora Security :: Few User Accounts Created - Cannot Be Deleted?

Jan 1, 2011

My Linux is Fedora release 13. I found there are a few users created not by me. I am not sure if the system got hacked somehow. Then the hackers created these users, i.e. (1) oracle, (2) exim, (3) test, (4) cox. I tried to delete all of these four users by using "usrdel" command but the system said "I cannot delete these users as the users are logging in". If my system got hacked ?? or these users are created by the system itself?

Ubuntu :: Accidentally Deleted An Admin User Account?

Aug 9, 2011

I had two accounts. One was an admin and I set the other as an admin as well, but left it without a password since I wanted the new user to enter it themselves. I went into the new admin account and deleted the old, passworded one.

However, this new account doesn't have a password that I explicitly defined on it. How do I change that? The account is the only one and still 'disabled'.

Debian Installation :: Network - Find The Additional Files To Install

Sep 5, 2010

I have made a Debian minimal installer on a USB drive according to this manual: [URL] I have installed a minimal version of Debian, meaning text-only, with only the kernel, shell, filesystem, and a few programs. Now I need to install the rest of it over the internet. So here are my questions:

1. Where can I find the additional files to install?

2. Where can I find a manual that tells you how to install them? This manual doesn't say anything about that.

3. Are you supposed to install the files during the installation process, or do you get them online through the minimal Debian (using wget, etc.)?

Debian :: Default Ownership Of Folders And Files - Should Own By A User Without Root Permissions

Feb 12, 2011

Being new to Linux, i've just about got used to the Debian setup procedure now, but had a quick question on the default ownership of files and folders. On my default Debian installation, almost all the folders and files are owned by root:root. Is this the correct advised configuration or should the folders and files be owned by a user without root permissions - eg user:user?

Debian :: Duplicate Files In User Library - Safe To Remove Outdated

Feb 8, 2011

I have just upped from lenny to squeeze. I didn't mean to, really, but the package manager was well into its stride by the time I realised what was happening. Mostly all went well, BUT /usr is now 100% full. I notice that there are duplicate files in /usr/lib, eg Oct 11 22:35 and Sep 14 2008 (I assume the latter has been replaced by the former?). Is it safe to remove the "outdated" lib files? Is there an elegant way of doing it?
