Press C-s or Alt-s to start a filename search in the directory listing. When the search is active, the user input will be added to the search string instead of the command line. ...

This is a start of an answer. Each file has an inode object associated with it. The inode is filesystem-specific, which is why you cannot normally have hard links that span across filesystems. The kernel maintains an inode cache which may be updated whenever the OS has to open/reference a file not in the cache. The inode number is accessed after the ...

The splitting is in fact done very primitively. There is nothing special about it so that you can in fact just use cat to combine them back together. I use a combined file in this example, but you can use pipes to do this all in one step. cat rootfs_dreamplug_v10_Aug-28-20128.zip.001 rootfs_dreamplug_v10_Aug-28-20128.zip.002 > ...

A filesystem is more than just addresses for each file’s contents. It also has to keep track of which parts of the partition are unallocated (“free space”), and how much free space is available in total. If the filesystem in partition C: were to store some file data within partition D:, it would have to first look into filesystem D:’s structures to find ...

First, your core question is this: Why copying takes time across partitions on the same disk? Will go into detail below, but a single disk with multiple partitions is not “the same disk” from a filesystem perspective. From a filesystem perspective, a partition is simply another “physical disk” even if it is simply just a “logically” allocated space on ...

Different partitions are like different disks in this aspect. The blocks for each partition are assigned contiguously, what you propose is that the disk automatically repartitions itself assigning the sectors that belong to a partition to another. This approach would be very error prone, would degrade disk performance and would break other features like ...

Good list of ideas. Other more extreme things to try: Boot into safe mode Mount disk in another machine You can use ProcessExplorer to see what (if any) process has a handle on the file: Ctrl+L (show lower pane) In the lower pane, Ctrl+F for the filename

You should define the xdg-open variable to open with konqueror instead. Create a *.desktop file of Konqueror. This can be done by adding Konqueror to the Desktop. In Trinity Desktop you can do this by going to T-Menu and right-clicking on Konqueror and choosing Add Item to Desktop. Move the .desktop file (mine is konqbrowser.desktop) to ...

I believe you mean your server is a Linux server. You can run the following coomand to be sure: $ uname -a The next step is dangerous if you use it in the wrong place, because it can delete anything on your system. Make sure you are in the correct directory. To remove an entire directory full of files (over ssh): If your files are in a directory at ...

Have you tried to show hidden files/folders on your computer? If you are on Windows, you can enable it at this way: Control Panel > Folder Options > View tab > check Show Hidden files folders and drives

It's a series of layers - at least two. Blocks within each volume (e.g. C:) are managed by the file system driver. (In fact, a good definition of "volume" is "one instance of file system metadata". Each volume defines one and only one root directory \.) Volume(s) within a physical disk are managed by a partition driver and a volume driver. The volume ...
