Files are not deleted, but made hidden

Postby fred44nl » 2018-09-04 09:53

before my present machine, I was using a Raspberry Pi 3B, with Raspbian Lite.
to begin with, this was Jessie, later upgraded to Stretch.
when downloading files with Sabnzbd+ and Deluge, the nzb- and torrent-files were placed in a special folder, watched by Sabnzbd+ and Deluge. once detected and handled, these nzb- and torrent-files were deleted, as they should.

now, I an running Debian 9 Stretch and doing exactly the same thing.
everything works well, with one exception:
the nzb- and torrent-files are not deleted from the watched folder correctly.
they are made hidden, instead of being deleted.

what could be causing this ??

from your description i'd say that the newer software version simply handles things differently.

don't think my current software is newer, than before.
quite the opposite, I think.
certainly Deluge is a bit older now and the kernel is also a lower version.

there appear to be more hidden files, with the same name as the file, they are referring to.
could this have to do with the way the drive is mounted ??

mount -l says:
fred44nl@Debian:~$ mount -l | grep sdb1
/dev/sdb1 on /mnt/usbhdd type ext4 (rw,relatime,data=ordered)


my fstab says:
UUID=cdd8bbd9-285b-45e8-ad06-ab29e7997e0b /mnt/usbhdd ext4 defaults 0 1

why do you say that?

sorry if i didn't make it clearer, but from your description the problem seems to be with the software you're using, nothing else.
maybe you should ask the developers of the software in question?
maybe it has its own forum/wiki/issue tracker?

what might happen if I were to mount the drive with 'defaults,noatime' ??

as this was the way the drive was mounted under Raspbian.
this was advised as the Raspberry is not very powerfull.

I opened one of those hidden files and this was in it:
com.apple.lastuseddate

(there is more, but I cannot quote that)

any suggestions ??

edit:

veto files :)

All you need to do is to edit your share config (for example in Linux in /etc/samba/smb.conf) and add the following option into your share config:

veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/

All you need to do is to edit your share config - /etc/samba/smb.conf - and add the following option into your share config:

veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/

#======================= Global Settings =======================

[global]

## Browsing/Identification ###

# Change this to the workgroup/NT-domain name your Samba server will part of
workgroup = WORKGROUP

# Windows Internet Name Serving Support Section:
# WINS Support - Tells the NMBD component of Samba to enable its WINS Server
# wins support = no

# WINS Server - Tells the NMBD components of Samba to be a WINS Client
# Note: Samba can be either a WINS Server, or a WINS Client, but NOT both
; wins server = w.x.y.z

# This will prevent nmbd to search for NetBIOS names through DNS.
dns proxy = no

## preventing both resource shares and .DS_Store files

veto files = /._*/.DS_Store/
delete veto files = yes
