First of all, thanks for making this community alive and happy new year to all readers !
I have a "LaCie d2 Network (2.2.8)" and I access it through windows 7. Recently, I decided to reorganize datas (because backup time were too long) to thin one big active partition by moving some big (size+nb files+nb dir) archives that would not change to a new archive partition.
So I copied datas by a copy and paste command from explorer to a newly created partition. After that, I tried to delete old files, but I had a surprise : +7000 files could not be deleted, cause beeing the properties of Unix User\root. I precise that I am admin of my machine and I checked also that all users of the NAS had full access read and write in the admin interface.
That was bothersome but it would have led to the result ...
BUT : it appears that some of the file cant be moved (OK I could kill them in the admin interface, and so I did) AND some directories (the ones in wich thoses files were) can't get killed from explorer. And that's a problem (for me) because the admin interface doesn't provide any function to kill directories !
I tried to get the propertie of the directories under explorer, but it seems I don't have the right (again the Unix User\root restriction). I tried to connect (with connect a network drive in explorer) with my Lacie admin account, I can't. I tried to look in the code if I would notice something like a "deldir" function, but couldn't find it. So I'm stuck with my rubbish dir.
Would anyone know a solution ? For instance :
- a way to reappropriate the rights under windows 7
- or, a magic tool that would enable me to be some kind of superuser on my LacieD2 in windows.
- or ... ?
I tried to ask the support, but they where not of great help for this ... I tried the forums, but with no success.
So, I'd be very pleased if you could help me ...
Thanks in advance
