Re: [vox-tech] Removing Files

Sorry got side tracked. I tried performing a file system check as you
suggested. The partition is LVM2 volume with JFS installed. It is a
snap to unmount since the contents are data. There were no errors
detected when running fsck.jfs.

The command run with output was:
# fsck.jfs -v -f /dev/vg/media
fsck.jfs version 1.1.3, 05-Sep-2003
processing started: 5/20/2004 13.39.3
The current device is: /dev/vg/media
Open(...READ/WRITE EXCLUSIVE...) returned rc = 0
Primary superblock is valid.
The type of file system for the device is JFS.

Filesystem size in blocks: 78643200

This isn't a FAT file system by any chance, is it?

Try writing a C program to remove these using the unlink() system

I tried writing a C program to solve the problem and no luck.  Here is a
 link to a bzipped copy of the file if you are interested in looking at it:


The program takes the current working directory and then prints the
contents out.  Then it tries to match any file starting with the
character "E" and unlinks that file ( *** BE CAREFUL if you run it, it
will unlink all files in the current directory that match that criteria
without asking!!! ). The results of running the program are ( no
different if run as root ):

[/usr/media/movies] # ./a.out
Evil Dead 3 - Army of Darkness (Director´s Cut).avi
Found the File!
Full Filename:
   /usr/media/movies/Evil Dead 3 - Army of Darkness (Director´s Cut).avi
Could not delete file
Error: No such file or directory
