http://serverfault.com – I have small Linux server (Debian Squeeze) which runs a Samba server which is configured to share some folders with some windows machines. While trying to delete one of the directories from windows I received the "Cannot delete folder" error. I tried to delete the directory from the linux's console I got a similar error: # rm dir-name -rf rm: cannot remove `dir-name': Directory not empty I listed the contents of the directory and found a file named .fuse_hidden followed by a hex number (000bd8c100000185). # ls -la dir-name -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5120 Feb 13 11:46 .fuse_hidden000bd8c100000 (HowTos)
