I faced this issue while I was removing huge list of files from a folder using
sudo rm -rf /folder/filename*
Take a count of file in the folder:
ls techlogs/ | wc -l
Upon googling found following command, that fixed my issue.
cd /folderAbove command will list all files start with “filenames”
sudo find . -name 'filenames*'
sudo find . -name 'filename-prefix*'| xargs rm
Above command will delete all files start with “
Such as –
You have huge files which file names started with ‘abc’, Then you will write the command –
sudo find . -name 'abc*'| xargs rm
