| Guys,
|
| For most of my files the rights string display "---------" when i do "ls
| -l", i wonder why no user/group/other rights are being displayed, though for
| some files it does

If ls can't successfully stat a file, it shows it with no permissions -
this includes when a file is locked by another process.  What do 'stat
file' and 'getfacl file' show on those problematic files?  And which file
is problematic - perhaps it is a known file typically locked by Windows.
