I had a crash on a disk array last week that was severe enough that fsck wouldn't fix it, even in single user mode. So, I was forced to suck off the good data, and restore the bad stuff from backups.
However there are 2 directories that contain files/directories which have bogus user & group ID's that the system just won't let me do anything to. I can delete them, cant rename them, cant move them, cant chmod/chown, cant cat to them, nothing... I just get "Operation not permitted". Here's a sample of one of them: ---xr----x 1 2761022747 1016642816 0 Apr 19 15:35 Video d--s---rw- 2 3251161791 726015594 512 Apr 19 15:41 .shrc Anyone have any ideas on how to get rid of these files? I've done an fsck from single user mode and that doesn't come up with anything. Short of copying all the data over to a new volume sans these files and then reformatting the old volume and then moving the good files back what can I do? Any assistance would be appreciated. I'd also like to thank everyone who browses this group and regularly posts responses... Without you guys some of us would never get the help and knowledge we need!
