Probably the ZFS disk label was not wiped by the btrfs format. (I know it happens with MD, because the MD label can be at the end of the drive. Even more exciting if MD auto-activates when you don't expect it). If you have no files, just use wipefs and then reformat. Wipefs is part of the same ecosystem that detects these labels (libblkid, credit Karl ...

rsync "This approach is considered to be better than disk cloning with dd since it allows for a different size, partition table and filesystem to be used, and better than copying with cp -a as well, because it allows greater control over file permissions, attributes, Access Control Lists (ACLs) and extended attributes."

Apparently this has been a problem for more than 3 years. Google Drive gets installed on a FAT32 partition but the folder needs to be only on an NTFS partition. So dumb that the installer doesn't abort or at the very least complain if no NTFS drives are found in the system.

The answer is that, with NTFS, apparently, yes (see other answers). You could try with older, simpler filesystems such as FAT. But that would be a stab in the dark. I just want to add that the problem can be reproduced with virtual machines. I use VirtualBox on a dual boot machine. I've installed the VirtualBox host software in both the Windows and Linux ...

I recently came across fatrace which uses fanotify. Works beautiful so I figured I would share. It does log all types of file operations including open/create/modify to stdout or optionally a file and you can even filter as to get only some types of operations. By default it monitors all mounts except the virtual ones. The author himself explains it well ...

This can also be done from Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Devices and Printers: right-click on the device and select Remove device.

You can use ren at the command line to create such file names. You can't simply delete the spaces since Windows Explorer complains that the source and destination file names are the same. You can go through a multi-step rename process or simply use the ren command. Some programs may not be able to open or save such files and consequently complain. More ...

You can try to use lockhunter (http://lockhunter.com/) or unlocker (http://www.emptyloop.com/unlocker/). Both programs can show which process is accessing the file you want to delete. EDIT: Even if the tools are self-explaining, here is what you need to do: Just install one of these tools. When trying to delete a file which is in use, the tool will popup a ...

you may (most likely) have limited access you can't 'browse' any other folders. The fact you don't see any . or .. is normal when using the ls command, instead if you type ls -a This should list the . and .. The most likely cause is either the folder is empty or they have set your FTP account up with the wrong permissions

The link above pretty much covers this, but this question seems to make it much more clear that it's just not convenient to run Explorer as an Administrator as of Windows 7. However, there was an answer without much attention that expands on what you said about using Notepad running as Administrator as a mini-explorer. I tested it out quickly, and I could ...

You may be nested deeper than you were previously if you are using the Windows user folders under C:\%HOMEPATH%\Documents etc. or any number of other reasons. Flattening your structure with shorter names is really your only option. To clean up the offending directory, make sure you have your files safely stored in a new folder and clean up the old one ...

First, get the index file: wget -O index.html "$URI" Then, rewrite the URLs in it: sed -i '/_sh\(\.html\)/_lg\1/g' index.html (I used sed, but you might prefer, e.g. an XSLT-based approach. Take your pick.) Now, tell wget to grab all the pages/info/*, using the modified index file and with its original location as the starting base URI: wget ...

I had the same problem, and chmod alone didn't do the trick. I first had to change the owner (user and group) of the files I wanted to remove. sudo chown -hR root:admin dir_to_delete Explanation: sudo: make sure you have the proper rights chown: Linux command to change owner of a file -hR: change owner of directory and all subdirectories.

Just rename one of those. It will prompt you with a message, just confirm it. Then you can delete either. I prefer renaming the html file because then you have chance to go back to previous state.
