Re: ls -l shows ???

What does "ls -b" show? What is eArray? What type of filesystem is it? What does "bdf ." show?
You may need to do a fsck on the filesystem.

Re: ls -l shows ???

Was something mounted that has got lost?
Are the question marks for owner and date fields?

Can you chown, touch, chmod etc?.

What does "bdf eArray" show?

can you "umount eArray"

As Dennis stated, "-b" switch may show the real name followed by some other hex characters.
