I'm not certain if this is really of concern to my initial issue (How often is that the case?), but I am quite confused by this and would like to figure it out.
I use rsync to backup multiple servers to one location. The backup script had been hanging, so I attempted to run the individual rsync commands as root. One of them was unable to complete due to errors such as this:
rsync: delete_file: unlink "/maxtor/blah/home/blah/Maildir/new/1175128673.19850_0.this.file.com" failed: Operation not permitted (1)
I found the directory this file was located, and upon using ls -l saw this:
There is something peculiar going on here. "?---------" doesn't make much sense to me, and the user and group ownership is bizarre as well. Just to top it off, this file is NOT from 1971. Trying to manually rm, chmod, or chown the files as root just tells me "Operation not permitted", and attempting to move the files tells me:
mv: `new/1175128673.19850_0.this.file.com' has unknown file type
Anyone have any clue? I've done a little bit of sleuthing but have came up pretty empty handed.
