I have a Western Digital USB drive attached to my SBS 2008 computer. I use this drive for backups. The volume is shared and is named "Castor".
I have this drive cifs mounted from a linux host in the LAN. I want to access the volume name for backup logging purposes. An "ls -l" of this volume from Linux gives:
drwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2009-10-05 14:40 System\ Volume\ Information/
as a directory supposedly containing the volume name, further supposedly in Windows format. However, I cannot see the contents of this folder. I get a permission error:
> ls /offsite/System\ Volume\ Information/
/bin/ls: reading directory /offsite/System Volume Information/: Permission denied
How can I see the volume name of this drive?
