Unhappy Transmission: Downloaded files not visible


Hi everyone!
Sorry for my english, I hope I'll explane me as well as possible....

I've a problem with some downloaded files with Transmission.
I use Transmission for downloading torrent files since I have installed Hardy Heron.
Everything was ok.
Last week I downloaded 25 GiB of files (dance videos, music and so on....) in my external hd.
On sunday I try to move some of them in a dvd.
As always I open Brasero and I search for them in my external hd: nothing.
They don't exist in the destination folder, the same in 2 years with ubuntu, that I called "incoming Transmission".

So, I made some checkes:
First:
- in Transmission -> right click on one of the downloaded, bright green and "invisible" file -> details -> informations -> position -> /media/hdext/incoming Transmission

Second:
- in pc Resources -> search file -> name of the same file inside /media/hdext/incoming Transmission...... Here it is!!!

Third:
- in the folder tree I mark "view hidden files": nothing! they're invisible!!!

If I open directly the destination folder I can't see them!!!
In these days I continue to download other files, and everything goes on right....

I'm a little bit desperate!!!!

Thank you!!!

Simona

Try, at a command prompt:
Code:
find / -type f -iname '*<some string in name of one of the downloaded files>*' 2>/dev/null
If you have downloaded music.mp3 that could be
Code:
find / -type f -iname '*music*' 2>/dev/null

Ciao Catkin!
Thank you for your answer!!! :-)

I try searching for the film "Onora il padre e la madre" and that's what give me the command you suggest

Code:
sbie@sbie-desktop:~$ find / -type f -iname '*padre*' 2>/dev/null

/media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission/Onora.Il.Padre.E.La.Madre.2007.iTALiAN.DVDRiP.XviD-DeLuXe.avi
It's exact!!!!
But if I open the destination folder "Leru Leru/incoming transmission" I can't see it!!!!!

Are you sure you are looking in
/media ?

what happens if you type
Code:
cd /media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission/
ls

Ciao Repo!!!

Here your command

Code:
sbie@sbie-desktop:~$ cd /media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission/

bash: cd: /media/Leru: Nessun file o directory
Nessun file = no file




But look what happens with the commands cd /media and ls

Code:
sbie@sbie-desktop:~$ cd /media
sbie@sbie-desktop:/media$ ls
cdrom  cdrom0  floppy  floppy0  Leru Leru
and if I try to enter in Leru Leru

Code:
sbie@sbie-desktop:/media$ cd /Leru Leru/
bash: cd: /Leru: Nessun file o directory
I'm so confused!!!...

The problem is caused by space(s) in the directory name causing the shell to split it into multiple words. That's why you get
Code:
bash: cd: /media/Leru: Nessun file o directory
The shell passes /medi/Leru to the cd command, not '/media/Leru Leru'.

The solution is to quote file and directory paths that include spaces
Code:
cd '/media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission/'
Alternatively, depending on bash being configured for "pathname expansion", you could type cd /media/L and then press tab. With luck bash will display cd /media/Leru\ Leru/ (the \ tells the shell not to treat the following space as a word separator) and then type inc and press tab

In this list there are ALL the downloaded files: some of them are in bright green characters, other are blue with green highlight, the 3 with the I/O errors are violet.

But if I catch the image of the same folder (with option "see hidden files" marked)... see the attachment.... you'll see only 28 files...

OK, a) the GUI file browser is not showing all the files that the command line listing shows and b) the command line listing shows some files with I/O errors.

Perhaps the GUI file browser doesn't handle the I/O errors sanely and gives up listing the other files. You could investigate by moving the files with I/O errors to a subdirectory and then see if the GUI file browser then displays the first directory contents correctly and how it displays the subdirectory.

These commands would move the files with I/O errors to a subdirectory
Code:
cd '/media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission/'
mkdir err_files
mv Dexter.1x06.Rispedire.Al.Mittente.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi err_files
mv Dexter.1x07.I.Miei.Colleghi.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi err_files
mv Dexter.1x08.Strizzacervelli.In.Busta.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi err_files
Chances are you have some file system corruption. First thing to do if you haven't already is to back up all the files on the file system. Then run fsck on the file system. To help further with this it will be helpful to have the output from the df command.

Ciao Catkin!
Here we are!

Code:
sbie@sbie-desktop:/media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission$ mkdir err_files
sbie@sbie-desktop:/media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission$ mv Dexter.1x06.Rispedire.Al.Mittente.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi err_files
mv: impossibile fare stat di
'Dexter.1x06.Rispedire.Al.Mittente.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi': Errore di I/O

I see the new directory "err_files" only with command -ls and if I try to delete the file 'Dexter.1x06 ecc ecc ecc' this is the answer

Code:
sbie@sbie-desktop:/media/Leru Leru/incoming transmission$ rm Dexter.1x06.Rispedire.Al.Mittente.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi
rm: impossibile rimuovere `Dexter.1x06.Rispedire.Al.Mittente.ITA.DVDMux.XviD-NovaRip.avi': Errore di I/O
Yesterday I have to copy some "invisible" files for my teacher...

Does that mean you were able to copy the files with I/O errors? It would be surprising.

Let us know how it goes with fsck. If you are lucky the problem files will turn up in the lost+found directory of the file system including /media, under different names.

File system corruption may indicate failing hardware ... do you have any way of testing the hard disk, for example the smartmontools package with smartd and smartctl?
