I recently unpacked a set of backup files in RHEL3 - 2.4kernel with tar via:
tar -xvf backupfile
It started to error out a bunch and I aborted thinking that maybe it was a gzip instead. Unpacking via:
tar -zxvf backupfile
Worked fine but now I have a handful of files that are highlighted red with crazy random names. I am unable to delete them using
rm -f. Is there any thing else I can do? I'm root, they are owned by root/root. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
