I can't find info on this anywhere, but I could swear that when I used to view hidden files in nautilus, what showed up were only the ".name" ones (this would have been back in 10.04). But now it also shows all the backup "name~" files as well.
Can some assist me in creating a backup script that copies an entire directory from a Linux system zip&copies the files over to a hidden windows base drive then searches the drive for files that are more than 3 days old and removes them.
There a ton of tools to help you figure this out, but I'd try ncdu (it's really lightweight and in the repo).sudo apt-get install ncduAnd, then run "ncdu" in terminal, browse (if necessary) to your home directory and see what's taking up space.You probably have hidden files (anything starting with a period is automatically hidden).
^ Hm? Not in Windows, but #! of course. Before this is becoming any more complicated, have a screenshot or two. Thunar with "Show hidden files" disabeld: ScrotThunar with "Show hidden files" enabled: ScrotI'm trying to force-hide those two folders without changing their names, so #! and Win won't interfere with each other.
Not sure if this is the right forum. But having problems with an encrypted external hard drive since updating to ubuntu 12.10. I can successfully mount the hidden volume in truecrypt but cannot see any files at all. Apart from the directory "system volume information" when i check the properties of the volume it is 30GB bigger than was previously reported.
