Context: I added a drive to my machine, and for whatever reason, I am unable to access a directory(?) on it.
ls: cannot access Downloads: No such file or directory total 56 d????????? ? ? ? ? ? Downloads drwxr-xr-x 26 user 12288 Aug 12 23:29 foo
. .. Downloads foo
bash: cd: Downloads: No such file or directory
touch: cannot touch ‘Downloads’: File exists
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘Downloads’: File exists
cat: Downloads: No such file or directory
Downloads: cannot open `Downloads' (No such file or directory)
mv Downloads down
mv: cannot stat ‘Downloads’: No such file or directory
Furthermore, the following commands do not remove the file(?), as root or otherwise:
rm Downloads rm -rf Downloads rmdir Downloads
One more piece of information, bash auto-completes Downloads, so bash also seems to think it is there.
