comment Why does a file marked deleted persist even after OS reboot and how does one remove it?
@Rich It looks like at this point there are clarifications "hidden" in the comments. Could you please edit them into your question, so that everyone stopping by doesn't have to read through the back-and-forth in the comments?

comment Running a ruby cron job
There error is a little odd, was there a / in front (/bin/sh:…)? Anyway, are you sure that is the right path to Ruby? ls -l /usr/local/bin/ruby shows it? What about command -v ruby?

@AhmetTanakol please edit your question to include the new crontab (with the full path to ruby) and the exact error message produced.

@AhmetTanakol Different $PATH. You can fix by using the full path to ruby or putting a PATH= line at the top of the crontab.

comment Redhat 5.11 Just showing 1.5TB Storage
It sounds like you got an actual capacity of 6TB ≈ 5.5TiB, and something is failing to handle >4TiB by passing only the lower 32 bits, leading to a size of ≈1.5TiB.

comment Redhat 5.11 Just showing 1.5TB Storage
That doesn't seem right. The MBR partition table limit is 2³² sectors, given 512 bytes (logical) sectors, that's 2TiB. You lose maybe 2MiB of usable space to partitioning—nowhere near 500GiB. There isn't a powers-of-ten vs. powers-of-two thing here, and even if there were that'd be 1.8TiB.

comment Cannot mount second 1TB harddrive in Linux, works fine in Windows 8.1
@Pacerier Windows 8 apparently has something like Linux's LVM called "storage spaces". In Linux terms, that NTFS filesystem sits on a LV inside, and /dev/sda2 is one of the PVs that make up the VG. At least when I looked back in August '14, I couldn't find tools that understand Storage Spaces, allowing Linux to use the LVs inside.

@MaurolepisDreki OK, I'll convert my comments to an answer. Please report the image upload error as a bug (along with browser/OS/etc. details, steps to reproduce, etc.) on Unix & Linux Meta.
