Can't Unlock/Delete P2 File From Hard Drive
on Feb 13, 2013 at 4:05:15 pm

Copies of P2 cards on my RAID are locked and I cannot delete them. This appears to be new. I have set permissions and applied them, all the usual stuff. This is only stuff from the last couple of months. Never ran into this before. Thanks!

Hold down the OPTION key when you empty the trash. Or, reformat the card in the camera.

I guess I was doubly unclear. The "cards" on my hard drive are copies from the original real P2 cards. So they are a series of folders labeled card 1, card 2, etc each of which contain the contents folder and last.txt file. It is these files - within the copied folders - that are locked so I cannot even get them into the trash. I have drilled through all the permissions for all users, admin, etc to read and write, applied all to contents, and yet all the media files in the folders are locked.

This never used to happen 2 projects ago.

They've always had those locks...thus why you needed to FORCE the trash to empty by holding down the OPTION key. But to not even be able to move them to the trash...that's interesting. So you ran Disk Utility and REPAIRED PERMISSIONS?

Yes, that's all true. Those individual files in the folders in the contents folder are all locked, and nothing else is hierarchically. Can't get em into trash. Ran DU and repaired permissions...even logged in a root user and still cant kill the buggers! Crazy, eh? All other files associated with those projects deleted normally. Just the P2 card copies. But wait, there's more....one project was done in FCP7 and on in PP CS6 so they don't even have that in common....

Have you tried deleting them through P2CMS?

Yes, I did, thanks. However I have solved the problem in the most unlikely of ways. In July, long before these projects, I installed a new boot drive with Lion and that's what these projects were done under. I had an idea and reinstalled the 10.6.8 drive I had shelved, and then I was able to remove the files. Note the Lion system disc under which these files were copied to the RAID is dual boot 10.7.5 and 10.6.8 and neither would delete the files. But the system drive removed months before did delete them, Curious, but it worked.
