Deleting files from linux
Posted on 2004-10-14
I have a laptop (formerly xp) with a failed drive. I'm able to boot into knoppix and copy files over by using the following command:
mount -t smbfs -o uid=knoppix,workgroup=Workgroup,username=Username,password=Password,dmode=755 //Computer Name/Shared Folder /mnt/shared
The problem is that I can't seem to delete files from the drive once their copied. Any idea how I can do this? I tried taking the read only flag off, setting permissions any way I know how, etc.
