Post Deleted files are respawned
Hello, I use ntfs-3g under Fedora 13 to use a partition on a secondary hard disk.
In fstab I inserted the line
Code:
/dev/sda1               /mnt/Backup             ntfs-3g defaults        0 0


I noticed some "zombie files": when I delete one of them, the file is correctly put in the recycle bin and disappear from the ntfs partition.
But after some time it reappear and is recovered! I don't know how it is possible, I even tried to delete the file and empty the recycle bin, but the file always reappear.

It's not only a single file, but a bunch: an mp3 and some photos, they're put in different directories, all created in a couple of days. However, with newer or older files or if I create e new file and I delete it, they're permanently removed.

Before cleaning them from Windowz (or try to clean them...) I want to signal you this strange thing. Is there any test I can do to try to delete these files within Linux?

Thank you

:oops: :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
...sorry, I'm really a dumb! Days trying to figure out why the files were respawned and just after have posted this thread I saw starting the backup program.... :oops: :oops: it was set to sync the partition (instead of backup) with another one and to not delete files on the destination.

The solution was so easy... :roll:
