    Unhappy File invisible in ntfs hard disk, downloaded using wget.

    i downloaded a website using wget. I stored it into ./media/s3 which is ntfs formatted partition.
    When i view the directory via GUI, no such file is visible. But, when I do an ls on the folder, I can see the name of the file that i stored ie. "www.bits-pilani.ac.in".

    Please help me out! Also, is it possible to run the website from the command line? something to start the mozilla firefox browser with that file???

    Running the following command should work

    firefox name-of-file.html

    Keep in mind that if the file is a script, such as PHP, you won't be able to view the page directly, it would have to be interpreted by a web server.

    I worked on the problem and got what was going wrong.
    I was saving the file with './media/partition3' which wasnt referring to a partition but a media file in the root folder.
    But still I dont know,if next time i wanna save something on an ntfs disk, will that be error free?
    Feels good to have solved it for now. Thanks for the 'firefox' cmd.
