Help some files not showing up in user share

So I recently added another drive to my unraid server since they other 2 were getting pretty full. Because my split level is set at 2 and this share has TV shows and movies I decided to move some of the TV Shows to the new drive since they still air and the episodes go to the drive the show was originally on. I did this via Midnight Commander. All the files moved successfully and if I browse by drive they are all visable.The problem comes when I try to browse by the Media share. All the files that I moved to the new disk no longer show up. Im sure I just forgot to do something but Im either bad at searching the forums or no one has had this issue. I would love any help anyone has to offer. Thanks

You will need to run the 'newperms' command against the drive that you moved the files to.  You almost certainly reset the files to be owned by 'root' when moving them with MC.

next time execute the following to launch MC:


sudo -u nobody mc


That will run MC as the user nobody and the files should have the same authorities as if you moved them across the network.
