Re: inodes VS files

I'm asking the folks on this list about this even though its not
specifically a FEDORA question, simply because of the brain power the list

To make a long story short, an Administrator about 200 miles from my
location ran the / file system out of inodes on RH7.2. It was determined
that /opt/arkeia was where most of the inodes went, so I suggested he nuke
/opt/arkeia after we freed up about 50 inodes by deleting some junk files.
Instead, he did :  mv /opt/arkeia /samba   , samba being its own file system
with tons of inodes. This was done in single user mode. The box was then
restarted with no significant messages. I got status reports over the phone.

umount /samba


Is there anything in /samba now?

Mounting a filesystem can hide things.

I'll bet the mv was *really* fast too right? :-D
