    Re: Jaunty + USB NTFS HDD = Missing files

    I have discovered after running ls that two of the files written to the directory can't be accessed due to a Input/Output Error. I think this is what's causing nautilus to not display the majority of the directory. However if I try to remove it or access it in any way I simply get an I/O error. Anyone know how to remove it?

    Would it help to start a new thread somewhere, with I/O error in the title?

    I've given up atm, having retrieved most of my dear departed files using Photorec.

    I have this same problem. As explained here, my files disappeared on me. Yet the ls-la command below says there are twelve files in that folder in my Home. This is on a desktop.

    total 12
    drwxr-xr-x 2 cupofdice cupofdice 4096 2009-10-25 22:28 .
    drwxr-xr-x 3 cupofdice cupofdice 4096 2009-10-25 22:33 ..
    -rw------- 1 cupofdice cupofdice 70 2009-10-25 22:28 .directory

    Edit: I installed XP in virtualbox, and after a lot of b****ing with Vbox and user groups and usbs, I am now taking my files from my ext hd onto my XP and will move them to my internal hd that way.

I never had any mounting trouble with it though. However, possibly the weirdest thing is that if I go to /media/disk/ it shows /downloads /images and /system volume information, though if I go to /media/disk/music/ it shows all the sub-folders within my music folder located on the main drive. any explanation woulld be appreciated.
    Well...
