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
