*nix: recursively listing “hidden” files from the current directory

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/25

As a follow up on my recent rsync on ESXi 5.1 post, as – when rsync in ESXi terminates the hard way because of a lost SSH connection – rsync can leave “hidden” files behind.

A small script that recursively shows the hidden files (those starting with a dot) starting from the current directory:

find . -iname ".*"

More of those (including deleting them, filtering for only files or only directories, etc) are at Linux / UNIX: Bash Find And Delete All Hidden Files Directories.

Note: don’t try to outsmart using something like piping through grep "\/\." as that will also match files who’s parent directories are hidden.
