Moved all my movies to one external USB hard drive so I could catalog them. But since there are many movies, I decided to create directories like this:
This was done on the terminal mkdir movie_a, etc. It’s easy to have movies like this, I think. When I want to find a movie, I know the title.
Then I moved “mv -v a* movie_a/” and a few more into those directories. After creating movies_a, b, c, d, e and f, I opened nautilus (files) to see how more movies I had and I could not found movie_a or the others.
This was after I moved movies and It showed that files were “renamed” (moved) into the directories.
So let me draw the picture of it:
mv -v a* movie_a/
open nautilus -> look for movie_a -> missing directories
At the time I had another USB drive full formatting because I want to move it to another computer, so I guessed it was a sync issue, maybe too much going on the USB line. I did sync and rebooted.
Directories were still missing and I don’t know where are my a* movies now. I created “mkdir movie_a” and it created a new movie_a.
What da hell? I know it’s a bit strange situation but I cannot reproduce it now, because I created another directories, moved other movies and they are now there.
Has anyone experienced any missing stuff?
