Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit
Samba shared with Windows folders
I shut down Ubuntu without unmounting a Windows volume. Now on my desktop there is a file:
"database (f) on study-raid.volume"
with the location: x-nautilus-desktop:///
I can not not delete it. Using gksudo nautilus, I can not see the file on the desktop yet it is there.
I can mount any volume from any computer on the network - except for "DATABASE (F)", location smb://study-raid/ - which is what this file refers to.
If I try to mount that drive, the desktop clears of anything I have put there and Ubuntu goes into an endless loop with folders 'Starting File Manager' opening all along the bottom panel - so rapidly that 'Starting File Manager' is the best guess I can make of the name of all the identical folders opening. I can not stop it and have to switch off the computer.
Any help would be appreciated.
