I have different partitions for
~, both with
ext4 filesystems. In
~, I have a folder with many files, I tried to move the complete folder to the root partition
mv ~/folder /folder/
In the middle of the process,
mv complained that there is not enough free space on the partition on which
/ is mounted. So I copied the files back
mv /folder/* ~/ rmdir /folder
Now some of the files in
~/folder are broken. Their file sizes are shown to be 0. I tried to unmount
~ and run
fsck but it would only tell me everything is alright.
How did I break these files? And how can I recover them?
Edit: Ah, I just realized now, the files have now an ending called
.part, otherwise the names are the same.
Edit: I don't understand why this question gets closed. I can reproduce it and it didn't "seemingly went away on its own". If you want to close it, you have to find a better reason.
