Appimage for WatsApp cannot be removed

Post#1 by Kulle » 06 Oct 2023, 09:18

I used the Appimage for WhatAapp for some time
I experimented with it and now it doesn't work anymore
I note:
The walc directory is very large and very nested:

Code: Select all

guest@porteux:/mnt/sdb1/Browser_/WhatsAppWalc$ du -sh walc
595M	walc
The directory walc cannot be removed:

Code: Select all

guest@porteux:/mnt/sdb1/Browser_/WhatsAppWalc$ rm -r walc

After executing this command, the entire USB stick is "read only"
Nothing can be deleted:

Code: Select all

guest@porteux:/mnt/sdb1$ rm aktuelle-links 
rm: cannot remove 'aktuelle-links': Read-only file system
guest@porteux:/mnt/sdb1$ rm -r bookmarks/
rm: cannot remove 'bookmarks/': Read-only file system
guest@porteux:/mnt/sdb1$ rm -r Temp
rm: cannot remove 'Temp': Read-only file system
But hdparm shows:

Code: Select all

root@porteux:/mnt/sdb1# hdparm -r /dev/sdb1

/dev/sdb1:
 readonly      =  0 (off)
This is completely inexplicable to me
Fortunately
After the reboot, the USB is no longer "read only"

But when I run the rm command again, the entire USB is "read only" again

I now have to live with this corpse, I can not remove it?
