[K12OSN] OT: user's disk usage and inodes



OT:
I have a student user who seems to be taking 2.8 gig of storage space on a samba linux file server. I got this info from a program called 'xdiskusage' which scans a partition like /home and gives a list by directory and descending order of use. This student user is taking 2.8 gig. And directly under his /home/username folder is another entry in the list (xdiskusage) "2.8 gig inodes." If you look at his home directoy he only has about 100mb in files ? Where the heck is 2.8 gig coming from ? Will a boot in single mode and e2fsck free the inodes ?
The 2.8 gig will also be reported from a windows98 box by right clicking the folder and properties.
Thank you,
Tom Ventresco
