Ghost file :-)

Forum thread started by hunnia on Tue, 2008-08-05 11:07

From Haiku I copied (Really it seems that I moved) a directory (Internet) fro Zeta to Haiku.
Since apparently the directory was moved and not copied, I tried to copy it back.
I could copy it anywhere back to Zeta, but the old directory.
It says that the Internet (directory) exist in directory /apps, when it is really not there. (I checked it with ls also.) How can i remove/clear up this nonexistent directory in /apps?


Re: Ghost file :-)

Note: Using Haiku and mounting Zeta I can see /Zeta/apps/Internet executing ls -l, gbut it have ??? attributes. (Corrupted??). However I cannot remove it.

Haiku *can* corrupt your BFS file system. I've had it happen to me - I believe under intense disk activity.
