A part of the filesystem is reserved for the root user. If that part is used, it is >100%. I don't think that it is because of where the USB disk was mounted.

I haven't see nothing in the handbook or man pages about > fsck on GELI disks. You have to attach the GELI disk first. If this disk is listed in /etc/fstab, this will be done at boot. If not, do 'geli attach /dev/daX' where X is the number of the disk. After that, you should fsck /dev/daX.eli, _not_ /dev/daX! > 3.- Also, I have a problem after this, when I try to use smbutil to > connect to Windows computers, i can't, i get an kernel error saying that > "smb_util_xxx is not in the kernel" (something like that, I don't have > here the exact message now). How can I correct this? At a guess, I think that the SMB filesystem isn't compiled into the kernel, and you need to load the smbfs kernel module; 'kldload smbfs'. If you want to load it automatically at boot, add 'smbfs_load="YES"' to /boot/loader.conf.
