- What does the @ mean in ls -l? 7 answers
I started encountering the following problem when I was trying to delete a set of files when I started seeing the following error on my MAC with macOs, Mojave.
"The operation can’t be completed because you don’t have permission to access some of the items."
When I looked closer, one file with a specific file permissions, was causing this issue.
-rwxr-xr-x@ 1 adikshit 1668562246 10963817 Dec 26 2009 DSC_1202.NEF -rwxr-xr-x 1 adikshit 1668562246 11273265 Dec 26 2009 DSC_1203.NEF
The file in first line was fine and could be deleted. The second file without the @ symbol was causing the error.
What does this symbol mean.
I have looked at https://www.guru99.com/file-permissions.html but it doesn't explain the attribute @
