I was backing up my Xbox (XEcutor 2 chipped, XBMC August 28 2006 build - I was doing a backup before updating
) harddrive with FileZilla this morning. FileZilla crashed halfway through the transfer, so I restarted it and begun the transfer of drive F: again. Judging by the logs, I tried to transfer the half-copied backup back to the F:/Games folder (creating something like "/F/Games/F/Games/<etc>"
Anyway, when I noticed what I'd done, I stopped the transfer and tried to delete the /F/Games/F directory.
After lots of "Response: 550 Permission denied - Deleting in XBOX Root not allowed." errors, I discovered that /F/Games was empty (both in the Xbox and FileZilla). Despite this, there was no more space reported free on /F/ than there had been before I started.
I shut down the Xbox in the usual XBMC way and restarted it. Now pretty much the whole of /F/ is gone, but FileZilla is reporting no space free.
So: can anyone shed any light on where my /F/ drive data or free space has gone? And can I get any of it back, or is it new hard drive time?
(And yet again, I vow not to do file management tasks at the *end* of an all-nighter.
