Linux / Unix :: List Full File System

Blog Post created by Patrick-Dussault Employee on Jan 8, 2016

In order to list all files (including hidden ones) on a Linux / Unix System, you can run that command :


# ls –Rltrha / > ls.txt


That will give you all files with all permissions from root / in the ls.txt. This is useful to review an existing installation permissions and temporary files.

Note also that the /proc repository will give you details about all running processes.
