inodes are used for file entries. Each file/directory uses an inode. When you run out of inodes, you can't create any more files, no matter how much space you have left. "df -i" will show inode usage. The only way to free up inodes is to delete some files/directories. You must have a lot of files or directories somewhere to be using up all your inodes when you have 50% of the disk left. Once you find out where all the files are, you can delete some, or possible tar them up so they only take up a single inode. -- Bill Moran Collaborative Fusion Inc. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
