can you

ls -la /var/hda/files/drives/drive1

Unfortunately when I was trying to get this to work I 777-ed /var/hda/files/drives/drive1 so this may not help a ton. I used sudo to create gh.:

[billium@localhost LandingZone]$ ls -al /var/hda/files/drives/drive1/
total 28
drwxrwxrwx 4 root root  4096 Oct 12 20:55 .
drwxr-xr-x 5 root root  4096 Oct 11 18:01 ..
