.mntcheck file is missing



  • Hello
    I tried “touch .mntcheck” on /images and /images/dev folder but still not seeing that file.
    Thanks



  • files in Linux that begin with a period are hidden.

    ls lists files.
    -a includes hidden files.
    -l shows permissions and ownership.
    -R is the recursive flag.

    So this command would show every single file in /images and it’s sub-directories:
    [CODE]ls -laR /images[/CODE]

    You could pipe that with grep, which is a powerful searching tool and just search for .mntcheck

    [CODE]ls -laR /images | grep .mntcheck[/CODE]
    That will only show all instances of .mntcheck inside the /images directory.

    There should be two.



  • @KJ-You it must be hidden file. I created a test.txt and and try to rename it then it says it already exist.
