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
The virus would have created an file with complete paths
If fol1 has two more directories fol11 and fol12 Then there would be two more .exe(virus created) in the following path
I have 2 external hdd in wich I have all my files. yesterday, I have copied all the files from hdd2 to hdd1 and I want to eliminate duplicates so I used FSLint to find them,now I want to make a shell script to delete all the files/entries (read from the log file) that begin with.
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:
I have 2 external hdd in wich I have all my files.... yesterday, I have copied all the files from hdd2 to hdd1 and I want to eliminate duplicates so I used FSLint to find them, now, I have a txt file that looks like this:
Code: /media/My Book/!!!MIS DOCUMENTOS/Documentos/2 sep2003-jun2009 USB/!TESIS/TESIS/TESIS CVT LABVIEW Y CODEWARRIOR/LabVIEW85RuntimeEngineFull.exe /media/My Book/HDD_Toshiba/Borrable/Pen_Drive_4GB/Tesis/Super CD de la tesis/LabView/LabVIEW85RuntimeEngineFull.exe multiplied by millions of entries...
now I want to make a shell script to delete all the files/entries (read from the log file) that begin with:
/media/My Book/HDD_Toshiba/**** Since HDD_Toshiba is the folder in hdd1 (MyBook) that contains all the files from hdd2
I've got quite a decent rsync script setup, however I'd like to invoke it whenever there's change to a file. My initial idea was to use find, however this has two major flaws - the first being my particular unix veriant cant understand -print0 which means this doesn't work, the second is that I'm not 100% sure how to put variables into quotation marks so ls can understand the target:
for i in `find /shares/ -mtime -1 -print`; do ls -ltr $i;done
I just installed Fedora11 with the KDE desktop and completed a yum update. Every time i try to copy and paste files and even delete files from a file manager or my desktop, I get this error:Quote:Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_trash'.or thisQuote:Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_file'.orQuote:Could not start process Unable to create io-slave:klauncher said: Error loading 'kio_desktop'.Current KDE version is 4.2.2
i'm confronting atm. I need to create a folder where ppl can copy files and i need to be sure that those files cannot be deleted after they are copied there. The folder will be accessed over network, and i need to be sure no one will delete somebody else's files.Also i need to tell you that i'm working with regular users, so creating a folder for each user and chown/chmod-ing it won't do the trick(allready tried and ended up with a whole lot of files in the parent directory).I also tried chattr +a but that doesn't allow them to write new files in the folder.
Well my drive has errors where i can't mount it using a GUI but it will mount and let me see my files using shell or w/e it is that i'm using while in recovery mode. I have manage to change my directory to the one that has ALL of the files that i want and need to copy. I was wondering whats the easest way to copy ALL of the files which are like 20 GB onto my 500 GB external HDD? and How will i know everything is done copying?
I can't perform any of those.Except from the Terminal.I didn't edit any permission... nor installed anything.Don't know what to do.Also, "Move to Trash" appears grayed out, in the right-click menu (for all the files/folders).

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.
I am a novice to the shell script. In my system from db server the log files are enerating with the name log1.txt,log2.txt..... It is capable of keeping 10 files at a time in dir called /db/sis/log1.txt. I want to copy the log1.txt to another directory when ever it generating by attaching the time stamp to it for the back-up purpose. this files will be there for a period of 24 hours. after that the back-up dir should be cleared and it start copying again the fresh file from the same dir.
I am trying to create a shell script, on taking a input file as parameter, which need to do 3 things
1) create a copy of existing file.
2) add a new line to the copied file.
3) strip off all the absolute paths inside the copied file
The first 2 points are straight forward. but i am finding it difficult to acheive the 3rd point. myself not very good with awk and sed. but gave it a shot in vain. For example, the input script consists of below,
want to write a shell script to copy database archivelog files sequential from one directory to another directory within a server. I am hereby enclosing the sample archivelog file name. Archive log filename : log_0000118432_1.arc (Here number 0000118432 will be sequentially incremented by 1 for next filename). Here the catch is all Archivelogs must be copied to destination directory. Previously copied files should not be copied.
I couldn't find my previous posting about udev at booting, so I created a new posting with the same material. Subsequently my earlier post showed up again----or I managed to find it. I can't seem to find any information about how I go about deleting the earlier post. Supposedly we are supposed to be able to notify the managers of abusive posts. I thought I might use that to ask them to delete the earlier post, so I will try that..
Alright I have just got done installing Ubuntu 10.10 and Lamp, now I know I need to move all my website files to Var/WWW. Well there is a little problem, when I try to delete the two test pages or even edit them. Ubuntu tells me i do not have permission. And what confuses me the most is i installed the damn OS and i was the first account made one it i am an admin and i still cant delete
Allright, I made a simple script that tarballs my SQL databases weekly and saves them to a backup harddrive.If possible, I would like to have the backups uploaded to a remote server for storage. But, I must have the script delete the previous upload for size contraints.I can only use rsync, scp or sftp. Haven't used any of them really before... Here's my basic tarball-backup script:
Code: #/bin/sh # Dates the new tarballs of current builds. DATE=`date +%m_%d_%Y`
I am new to unix, I am looking for a script to delete files older than 7 days but i also want to exclude certain directories (like arch,log .....) and also some files with extensions ike .ksh, .ch, ..............) in directories and sub directories
