Full Version: Mv Problems
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
i was 'mv'ing a large dirrectory when i accidentally halted the system, i think that now the dirrectory is split into two halves, but i'm not even sure about that. what now?
Gut instinct, your probably in a little trouble. But lets look at this in a little more lite.

Does the dir show up in both the old and new locations? If it does, you can probably just move the remaining files by hand. If it doesn't, I am not quite sure what options you have other than trying to do some nasty forensics.

Give us a little more details about what you have now and we might have some more ideas.
If it's split in 2 parts, you can probally do this to fix the problem:

mv /old/dir/* /new/dir
