Cannot delete PhotoRec Backup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 7, 2009
I had an issue some days ago with my external HDD which caused me to lose my video files on the drive. I used PhotoRec to back them up, but now that it's done backing all of my movies, I can't remove the backed up files off my main drive. My 750GB hard drive is full to the brim with data and I can't remove it. When I go to change the permissions on it, the prompts tell me "You are not the Owner, so you Can not change these permissions" which is BS because I am the owner!
Okay, to break it down, I wanna delete this crap, but my own computer won't let me. Is there a simple solution to this?

I need some help to fix some disk space issue.
Actually I'm using a private vps cloud server with 50Gb of disk space.
When I run `df -h`, I get :

[HOWTO] rsync with Google Drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 10, 2014
Edit: This HOWTO is now available on the LQ Wiki! Please check it out here: http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/...h_Google_Drive
DISCLAIMER: Uploading to a cloud storage system implies that you trust the maintainers of that system and everyone in-between to not mess with/read your data. If this is a concern for you, but you want to upload to Google Drive, anyway, please consider using some of the encryption methods mentioned here (or another encryption method of your choosing): http://how-to.linuxcareer.com/using-...ages-and-files
Thanks to mostlyharmless for the tips!
It took me a while to find a good, simple, reliable way to backup my stuff to Google drive, using rsync; so I've decided to share my method with the good people at LQ. In short, the answer is to use "gsync" (NOT "grsync", which is different and broken/incomplete). It supports (so far as I can tell) ALL the same options as rsync (glee!), and lets you do it with Google Drive! You c
Most durable storage media?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 25, 2011
Let's say a guy wanted to construct a time capsule. I'm referring to one of those boxes or containers that you drop in the ground, and decades later you (or someone else) digs it up to learn things from that time.
And let's say you wanted to drop several Gigabytes worth of digital data in that capsule. What kind of storage media would you put it on? CD-ROM? DVD-ROM? USB stick? SATA drive? Magnetic Tape?
[SOLVED] How to Rescue a VM from LVM storage pool?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 19, 2014
I'm looking to see if I can rescue a guest VM from a LVM Storage Pool.
I have a server with 2 disks. The CentOS 6.4 HOST OS was on /dev/sda and I had /dev/sdb dedicated to a LVM based storage pool where I had only one CentOS guest VM.
The HOST OS disk /dev/sda is broken. Doesn't appear to be recoverable and no backups (I know, that will be my next project after I get this all back up and running). All rescue tools I've tried result in many IO errors on sda.
The 2'nd disk sdb is intact but I don't know how to retrieve anything from it.
When I set this up, I followed the RedHat Virtualization Admin manual "12.1.4. LVM-based storage pools". So sdb had one physical volume and a volume group.
I inserted the good sdb disk into another/different healthy CentOS 6.5 server (where it shows up as /dev/sdc). lsblk shows this:
sdc 8:32 0 223.6G 0 disk
\_sdc1 8:33 0 223G 0 part
pvs and vgs don't show anythin
[SOLVED] How to shrink a partition of a Linux VMWare guest?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 2, 2010
VMWare tools allows me to shrink the "disk" for a Windows guest. vmware-toolbox presents me with the option to "Select the partitions you wish to shrink." on a Linux guest. However, there are no partitions shown to be selected. Anyone had success doing this?
Storage volumes duplicated many times

To my Red Hat 6.2 I have connected array/storage (with 2 volumes created on it).
