comment How to add current date/time to clink/cmder prompt
But how to integrate that output to the prompt? I don't want to run date /t every time before running some long-running command.

@tripleee is correct, you are getting that error, because of the used shell.

Next time you should try to read man YOURCOMMAND (in this case find) first.

It does not work :-( (I'm on a Lenovo 3000 N200 which has no END only key, but with a "Fn" key. So I had pressed "CTRTL ALT SHIFT FN END", without luck.

But that's brings up the middle servers' task manager/password change function (as mentioned in the question).

Nope, I'm part of a domain, so it says I should hit CTRL+ALT+DELETE.

comment Why does “ls -a” hide some existing directory from the root user?
Fsck found it: most probably it was some filesystem error. The somedir directory was moved to lost+found. Now we are testing the disk for more errors.

Did so, except the reboot/fsck cycle (as I'm not allowed to do so). The find also not found somewhere. I can create the the new somedir directory, and can link to it. I can't create a somewhere dir, as it complains, the file already exists. I can link to somewhere as well, and after an ls -l I can see a listing where there is a link to a directory within the same parent, and can't see the target.

It's mentioned in the question: ext3 on an emc disk system.

Thanks for the Maxwell's demon link, interesting read, and the automount explanation is a possibility. Yet, I assume, if I change to somewhere, then issue a mount|grep somewhere and it's mounted at that time, it should be listed, which is not the case.

Thanks for the summary Arjan, you got it. And yes, somedir exists as I can list the contents of it (there are several subdirs, files).
