Automatically deleting the directory in RedHat Linux 5


Dear All,

Something strange is happening with RedHat Linux 5. I created one directory system_verilog twice and both the times somehow it's get deleted after next booting of machine (after modification of some of the file in this directory).
Can anyone help me to get the reason behind this issue?

Thanks!

Where are you creating the directory? That directory doesn't exist in a full install of Red Hat EL 5, at least that I can find.

I am creating this directory in /home/<user_name>/. It's not a part of the installation directory.

OOOooo... That's bad. We run all of our servers at work on Red Hat Enterprise 5 or CentOS. I run Slackware on 6 servers myself. Never seen or heard of this one.

We have a wide variety of hardware running Red Hat 5... from laptops to large, RAID, multicore servers.

Is this the only directory that is being deleted? Everything else is good? Have you run fsck for your file system to make sure all is well with that? Hopefully you are not dealing with some bad disk sector or something.

Is their no other badness besides? No rogue scripts? No cron jobs? How about moving this directory to another location? Just to see if it is happening because of where or who owns it on the system.

I'm just throwing out a bunch of ideas and things to look at. I really have no idea. That makes no sense. We have a few dozen systems and have never observed anything like this.
