Files and directories with insufficient permissions

In case you met any issue during copying your files related to low permissions, it is necessary to check current permissions on your files/directories. If you operate any system from Windows family you can use MobaXterm to check it.

Please log in to a Data Storage, where you wish to check the permissions.

Now go to the directory using cd and list all the files and directories inside by using ls -alh. Now you can use following command to find problematic files/directories with insufficient permissions.

# find -L . -perm +u-rwx,g-rwx,o-rwx

If you wish to correct insufficient permissions simultaneously, you can use following command:

# find -L . -perm +u-rwx,g-rwx,o-rwx -exec chmod u+rX '{}' \;
