Hey y’all, anyone have an idea on why I can’t remove some of my files off my Pi. I’m using WinSCP and I get an error saying my permission is denied. So I went through windows explorer and got the same issue. I opened Putty after that and went to the directory and did the command “rm *” and the error came up saying I couldnt delete anything because “——; is a directory”
Any ideas on how I can get around this? Thanks.joyrider3774Participant03/08/2016 at 09:56Post count: 34
you can use rm -rf ./directoryname do watch out it will not ask for confirmation using those settings.
Also i have seen the error and it’s probably due to the fact that some files are created with a user with more rights. You can also try chmod 777 directory or file on the file you can’t delete not sure if it works recursive though but that’s what i did when i could not edit gngeorc file (had same error).
also prefix the commando’s with sudo if you still have problems
