linux permissions are the cancer that will kill computing

>a few days later try to delete the folder and relative subfolders with the data

at this point linux is basically malware in my windows installation.
It's very bad. I hate it. It's always some dumb convoluted shit that blocks you.
I want my 10gb back bros

      where the frick did you read this you illiterate homosexual?
      The problem is linux, the way it manages permissions on files.
      The container gets ownership of the files and then it's impossible to work with them from outside the container even if files can be seen.
      It's just moronic and bad design.
      sudo chow doesn't work because the file is blocked by linux moronic design. So you now have to know how to "unblock" the files, what the frick does it even mean?
      Btw the unfree space on disk is caused by windows being moronic, of course.

        just because you're too moronic to understand 3 separate rwx categories, it's not a problem of linux, then you go on to complain about docker wasting space, have a nice day subhuman

          mmmh no, I'm not moronic, I'm just ignorant because I can't learn infinite things.
          The best user experience is that if I'm SUDO I can do everything I fricking want.
          That's not what happens with linux because it's moronic.

            if you weren't moronic you'd have looked up why docker uses 8gb of space and found out that it is bloat, would also have realized that it is what's preventing you from removing files because you vill use docker only to manage everything and you vill enjoy it including manually running like 7 separate docker commands telling docker to try and debloat itself, now you likely broke it and I hope you know how to nuke your wsl on your own because not my problem

            the 8gb was data generated in the docker container by the app I was running inside the container. After I was done with the data I killed the container and I tried to kill the data, this last passage failed.
            I didn't explain myself perfectly but you have a stupid prejudice against docker.

            I'm blaming all three.
            Microsoft should stop being gaycorpo
            Linux devs should learn about user experience and usability
            Docker should do the same as linux devs

            root does not have write permissions to every file. It can however always change the permissions. I guess docker does this as part of the containerization process to make sure some clueless admin doesn't modify a container's volume by mistake.

            yes, and this is pure insanity and I know it's the number 1 reason people end up telling linux to frick off.
            I have shit to ship, I can't play with permissions every time I need to do something fast and now.
            There is no sane reason to have this behavior as default

            How can you act so smug when it's obvious to everyone you have not a single clue what you're talking about? This whole thread reads like the first peak on a dunning kruger graph.
            Start using podman and read the docs.

        The problem is you don't understand Linux or how WSL2 works.

        imagine being filtered by linux permissions. it's literally 3 octal digits.

    also root users on real linux can mount UEFI and break motherboard irrepairably with one innocent command but you use wsl and don't understand that your cucked virtual machine isn't even close to that level of freedom

    You have to realize the vhd, dumbass. Also stop using docker and use podman which is userns by default.

    It's about as easy as git. you're just dumb.

      "clear the images" was not the problem, you are ignorant of what I've explained.
      You are here promoting podman (nothing against it) without even knowing the basics of persisting data with containers

        There's more than image pruning.
        And podman avoids permission problems with bindmounted directories outside the containers if you use it in rootless or subuid-mapped mode.

        I understand the underlying building blocks perfectly fine.

          I think if I ran the image with -u "1000:1000" I would not have had any problem, but it was some shit I copy-pasted without thinking too much about it, which is what happens in the real world when it's time for a rushed job or you just want to test things low-effort.
          Sadly linux devs have no life and nothing outside of linux, so they will never understand what it means to be a real person.

    I don't use docker but I tried it once on windows and I think I remember creating the volume to persist data in windows, and then mounted to the container, not from within a container. And I had no problems deleting it. Am I misunderstanding or remembering wrong?

    While I'm sure the Docker engineers are better than me when it comes to their own program, I don't like weird solutions like Docker on Windows.
    IIRC, the Docker on Windows (and on Mac) are both actually Linux VMs that have Docker.

    Why do that?
    Why not just use a Hypervisor (Hyper-V or VMware), install actual Linux, then install Docker? Why let Docker provide the middleware, when you can just do it yourself?
    That's just my experience.
