There is a directory in my filesystem. If I do an
ls -a in the directory, I get nothing (not even
../). If I do an
rmdir, I get told that the directory is not empty.
rm -rf gives the same "not empty" error. I tried to use
mv to change its name. This produced an
Input/output error, but was apparently successful.
Say that I don't care about the contents, I just want to clean it up. What can I do?
OSX Tiger, in a FileVault home directory (if it matters).
EDIT: more diagnostics, as suggested by gbarry. As I said, the
mv was apparently successful, so the directory is called
