Hey everyone just wondering if anyone knows a solution to this one.
So my drive crapped out on my hardcore about a week ago.. left it in shambles... I did a factory reset to it which for some unknown reason erased the 2 firmware updates I had done since purchasing the unit a couple years ago. - Is this normal?
Anyway - I have got my firmware all re-updated to 18.104.22.168, and the newest Network Assistant ver 1.6.17 (not that it matters in my issue) I have networked both my MacBook running OSX (Lion) ver 10.8.5 and my Windows 7 x64 Dell Laptop.
I have probably put about 30+ hours in restoring the drive (moving all of the files from recovery to there respective folders etc), in addition to doing a clean TimeMachine backup (200 GB approx). Note: The sparse bundle was about 700 Gigs (went back a couple years)... I dont need that, just a clean backup of what it is now, so i erased it - took 5 hours to erase it ...
Moving along, I now ever every file/folder exactly where I want it. My media shares all work via DLAN to my WD TV etc... I could not be happier!
I am just stuck with one little issue... Left from the Recovery in my "My Share" is left the Recovery folder that has 2 sub directories - MyShare & Open Share. Open Share is completely empty. MyShare has these subs - recycle_bin -> Update all with no files or folders. I cleaned up (erased) as much as I could as most of that data was moved to my OpenShare for media streaming. The ONLY file I wish to see my MyShare is my MacBook Sparse Bundle.
I have tried deleting the empty folders with my Mac and Windows machine. I have also restarted the NAS (just incase a folder lock from an App was to play) only to be stopped every time in my tracks.
I get the following Message on my Mac:
"The operation can't be completed because your don't have permission to access some of the items."
Of course I do, I am admin of the NAS and both machines...
Any suggestions as to how I can clean this out... do i have to SSH into it?

Yes. On a Lacie a factory reset actually restores the box to the state it had when it left the factory.jefferymichael wrote:I did a factory reset to it which for some unknown reason erased the 2 firmware updates I had done since purchasing the unit a couple years ago. - Is this normal?
About your problem, you can try to delete the folders via ftp. Another option is to rename them, if you have the right. When you rename them to a name starting with a dot, it is possible that you won't see them anymore. (A file starting with a dot is 'hidden' on Linux boxes).
And else, yes then you need ssh, I'm afraid.
