df -i mentions:

so I have about 67 million files. taking around 2.4T of disk space. Compounding this is that I estimate that of a significant part of that 67 million files, most have around 100 hardlinks. So there are around 6.7 billion file-and-directory-names. I started a "du" run two days ago, but it had to be aborted because of the disk needing to be swapped. (failed drive). Ran into the above problem on the reboot.....
