    Defining multiple files in the command line.

    I have been doing some file recovery with photorec. Before you can do anyhting with the recovered files you have to take ownership of them using- sudo chown -R username recup_dir.* . I have recovered multiple files and was wondering how to define batches of them in the above command? Or maybe there is another command for that?

    Code:
    chown -R username recup_dir.*
    is a "batch mode" type of operation, just rerun it after every recovery operation(s), but before restoration.

    username would be your LoginID

    Gee whiz, I am such a doofus sometimes. I thought you had you replace the * with the number of the file that you wanted to delete. Got it now. Thanks for the help.
