You can try to use "TestDisk" to recover the filesystem. If that fails you can still try to recover some data using "photorec". It is considered good practice to work on a copy of the whole partition, because you can break things more while trying to repair. Might be impractical with a large partition though.

Suddenly Ubuntu 20.4 is not allowing me to copy/cut and paste saved docs from desktop directly into folders within my documents. If you are having this problem create a folder on Desktop first, then copy/cut and paste all you saved docs from Desktop to the folder and then it will allow you to cut/copy and paste to any other folder in your documents.

Q. Why 2 disks while I created only 1 disk? If you look at the descriptions for the devices, you will see: 1.1TB Hard Disk (the virtual disk you created) 215GB Block Device (a logical volume where the OS is installed) You will want to boot the VM with the installation ISO and grow the volume to use the entire virtual disk. Be sure to do this while the ...

You can remove all unused version of snap packages. You can create script file and make it executable or just copy & paste it in the console.

If you connected to an SMB/FTP/.. (etc) file systems remotely, you can't create a hard link (security policy). You should create a soft link. So you can use the ln command like that: ln -s file1.txt new-soft-link.txt It's hardlink-like, but not written physically to the Inodes partition section.

Solution, I made 2 changes which solved my problem. Change 1: Moved the mount point out of my home directory (/home/myusername) and created a folder in /mnt (/mnt/mount_folder) which i used as the mount point for the 4tb drive. Change 2: I mounted the share via its share name in smb.conf rather than the path. I think that this change is what actually fixed ...

I created an issue on github, and some nice guy (harshadjs) helped me to fix this issue, writing patch for the app. It looks like, it was something wrong with e2fsprogs and fast_commit feature in ext4. One can track it here. Bottom line is, don't mess with filesystem features, when your power supply is unstable and you don't know how to fix it on your own.

When you install packages (programs are provided in packages); they generally have set directory locations where they'll install to; so your main control is over the where those directories are located. This box (like most of mine) is dual boot; giving me two OSes; currently I'm using Ubuntu jammy (technically Lubuntu) & my other OS is Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. ...

Create a partition that you mount in both systems. Install the source version of the app in that partition. This ensures different versions do not clash (doing this with MySQL where Ubuntu 21.+ uses version 8 and another OS using version 5 is guaranteed to cause issues) symlink the executable to a directory in your PATH or add this directory of the source ...

I ran into what seems to be the same problem - baobab does not recognize swap files whether they are in use, or not. On my system, there were 2 swapfiles (I only knew about 1) and only one was active - I found the problem using du. Sorry for the late response - but I hope it helps others that stumble here.

Solution: Access your "Desktop" folder from "Home". Copy/cut from there and paste to any folder. Note: Copying from your desktop directly may not work except you change the permission of the Desktop folder from "Home".

btdu is a tool I wrote which attempts to explain how space is used on a btrfs filesystem. A common explanation is unreachable extents: A feature unique to btdu is the ability to estimate the amount of space used by unreachable parts of extents, i.e. data in extents containing older versions of file content which has since been overwritten. This btrfs "...
