I have a pc with dual boot (Windows 8.1 + MX Linux), I'm using FreeFileSync as my backup apps, since the last few updates I did few months back, neither FreeFileSync nor GSmartControl worked with Silicon Power drive (I tried a month back a new backup, it failed on my SP 1TB external drive), previously GSmartControl could recognize SP drive, but now it won't see it, and when tried to do backup, got errors (
G_IO_ERROR_FAILED: Trash portal failed on /media/michael/SP PHD U2/data/media/ebook/fiction/best seller/conto English1.epub [g_file_trash]), tried to delete the file manually (either through terminal or Thunar), got
Input/output error (even using
Tried to use the following commands (
sudo rm -f cont* &
lsattr conto*), both failed. rm did not return any message, but the file is still there, see the output below
$ sudo rm -f conto* michael@mx:/media/michael/SP PHD U2/data/media/ebook/fiction/best seller $ ls 'conto English1.epub'
and lsattr gave the following error
lsattr: Invalid argument While reading flags on conto English1.epub
Found a solution similar to mine on this post, I've never worked with VirtualBox in Linux, better ask before doing something stupid, I'd like to make sure that this will solve my problem. ps: my Windows in dual boot is corrupted, so I can't boot to Windows.
