SOLVED .mntcheck file is missing
I tried “touch .mntcheck” on /images and /images/dev folder but still not seeing that file.

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.
