My desktop must be less than average: I subscribe to this and several
other lists, use Maildir format (one file per email), and keep my own
local archive. It adds up.
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on
/dev/hda9 256512 48051 208461 19% /home
That's *after* having tarred + gzipped much of the back history. I had
got over 50% full, and then wanted to make a copy as part of a migration
process (which involved creating a new $HOME).
But then, I also found out the hard way that NTFS gets pretty unhappy if
you try storing more than 65000 files in one directory. Microsoft
Exchange does this by default if you turn on some monitoring modes...
