I am using the latest Deepin 15.11 and have just discovered that I cannot access my Documents folder (/home/username/Documents). In my file manager (Deepin File Manager) it simply says "You do not have permission to access this folder."
When I try to navigate there via my terminal I get this:
bash: cd: Documents: Too many levels of symbolic links
So I did a little digging and discovered that the output of
find -L ./ -mindepth 15 is as follows:
find: ‘./Documents’: Too many levels of symbolic links find: ‘./Templates’: Too many levels of symbolic links find: ‘./Public’: Too many levels of symbolic links find: File system loop detected; ‘./.steam/root’ is part of the same file system loop as ‘./.steam’.
Which seems to point to some other underlying symlink/permission issue. Attempting to change the ownership of the folder back to my username also fails due to the same "too many levels of symbolic links" error.
This is a fairly fresh install and I haven't done anything I would imagine could cause something like this.
Does anyone know how to resolve this without losing what was in my Documents folder? (assuming it's not already gone)
