So I goofed when using
sshfs and the folder I was using as a mountpoint for the server has been borked. The server wasn't unmounted correctly (I think due to a network drop out).
consequently, when I
ls my /Volumes/ where I had originally made the
mountpoint folder I now get an I/O error:
joehealey@Joes-MacBook-Pro:/Volumes$ ls -al ls: mountpoint: Input/output error total 24 drwxrwxrwt@ 7 root admin 238 21 Oct 13:08 ./ drwxr-xr-x 37 root wheel 1326 3 Oct 12:38 ../ -rw-r--r--@ 1 joehealey admin 6148 22 Sep 2014 .DS_Store drwxr-xr-x 1 joehealey staff 8192 28 Jul 20:04 BOOTCAMP/ lrwxr-xr-x 1 root admin 1 15 Oct 08:52 Macintosh HD@ -> / drwxrwxrwx 0 root wheel 0 21 Oct 13:08 MobileBackups/ joehealey@Joes-MacBook-Pro:/Volumes$ mkdir mountpoint mkdir: mountpoint: File exists joehealey@Joes-MacBook-Pro:/Volumes$
I've seen similar problems in thread such as this where the suggestions are to nuke the whole disk etc. Now, I'm not so concerned by this that I'm prepared to go that far, so I'm just wondering if there is any way to force-remove and resolve this specific instance?
