How to easily delete all these annoying "@eaDir" files on my unRAID drives. These files where created on my Synology NAS. Anyone?

I'd run

find /mnt/user -name @eaDir -exec rm '{}' \;

but because it's potentially dangerous I'd run

find /mnt/user -name @eaDir -exec ls '{}' \;

first to find and list them.

Or your could simply move them from where ever they are to a folder. I do that to my cache drive so I can browse and delete.


find /mnt/disk1 -name "@eaDir" -exec mv {} /mnt/cache/destination \; 


Yes I do that to each disk at a time often just to have more control.
