Re: listing a huge amount of file on one file system



Vince,

find will work better for you in that situation.  Its still going to take a
god awfull long time but at least you'll be able to see it while it works.

find . -maxdepth 1

There are several different ways to have the output go to a file within find
itself rather than just redirecting the output.  You can look them up in the
ACTIONS section of the man page.

I wouldn't need it if it weren't for a problem that we were having with
our Veritas Netbackup server not being able to backup this specific
server.  So the Veritas support folks wanted to get a listing of the
files in that directory.
