Unable to see folder for self in hdfs


Hi Admin,

While logging into the labs, I am able to see the OS level folder but not the one for hdfs. I tried the command hadoop fs -ls /user/abachwani and don’t see any data in there (see attached screenshot). Also the training via Udemy talks about the crime data set which I don’t have.

Please assist with this.


As there are no files in your HDFS path you are not able to see the files.

Copy the files using hadoop fs -copyFromLocal local_dir hdfs_dir to view your files.

For dataset in labs go through this link.


That worked. Thank You!
