Macbook pro 10.6.8
I'm trying to use the rm command in Terminal on a sparse file that I created accidentally on a volume on my LaCie ext HD. The volume is named MacBU2 and I used the command in Terminal "cd /MacBU2/. My prompt now says MacBook:MacBU2 and the pwd command results in /MacBU2. This volume has 4 folders and the sparse file. When I used the ls command it only lists a WinXPBU.vdi file in one of the folders.
I tried "ls info" [I think - whatever terminal suggested] and got into a help info that said nothing in English and also the only way I could get out was to close Terminal and start again.
Why isn't the ls command listing all the folders and the sparse file? Do I need a different command to list the contents of a volume vs a folder?
