FIX, cannot copy directory, /mnt/"*" into itself, '/mnt/"*"

Recommended Posts

After messing up a hard drive I spent a long time trying to reinstall the OS. It seems that there is a hidden file on the hard drive that must be manually deleted before you can reinstall an OS to it or you get this error.


rm /mnt/"*"/.prop 

Where are the "*" is should be the name of the mounted device.
