Description: Ubuntu 11.10 Release: 11.10 Codename: oneiric
I have a lot of folders and files with
??? ???? ??.txt - like file names when I do
$ sudo mount -t vfat /dev/sdb1 /media/some/folder
My external HDD is really fat32. Following a couple of suggestions, I need to
$ convmv -f cp1251 -t utf-8 -r --notest folder/
enca can't define encoding of the file(s). So, I've tried several encodings by try-and-check and it didn't work. I need to decide which files to delete and which to leave. So,
1) how to mount external HDD fat32 to show filenames correctly? 2) How to convert filenames encoding if I do not know encoding?
$ sudo dosfsck -a -v /dev/sdc1 dosfsck 3.0.9 (31 Jan 2010) dosfsck 3.0.9, 31 Jan 2010, FAT32, LFN open: No such file or directory
Rebooting the system and remounting it solved this
magic. But now I face a problem of
rm: cannot remove `somefilehere': Read-only file system
As I understand, the filesystem on external HDD is corrupted. Also
dd_rescue is probably my choice but if I could repair safely, I'd like to.
update2 Solved problem partly by
$ sudo mount -0 remount,rw /path/to/mountpoint
But still can't remove some files.
sudo chmod 777 -R /path/to/par
: Input/output error
