I'm very interested in your claim of double. Old metadata/cache Files: 30257 Dirs: 156 Raw Bytes: 24238169 4k blocks: 31165 Size @ 4k blocks: 124660k New metadata/md5-cache Files: 30256 Dirs: 155 Raw Bytes: 32650108 4k blocks: 31037 Size @ 4k blocks: 124148k Complete tree: Files: 159761 Dirs: 23166 Raw bytes: 263333212 4k blocks: 181851 Size @ 4k blocks: 727404k So a 20% increase in inodes yes, but not double. -- Robin Hugh Johnson Gentoo Linux: Developer, Trustee & Infrastructure Lead E-Mail : robbat2@g.o GnuPG FP : 11ACBA4F 4778E3F6 E4EDF38E B27B944E 34884E85
