I have an external 1Tb harddisk which due to some reason was showing following under
Filesystem Inodes IUsed IFree IUse% Mounted on /dev/sdb1 0 0 0 - /media/Transcend1T
But it has lots of free space remaining. So I took its backup and formatted it with disc utility in Ubuntu. But even after that Inodes still remain zero (it shows same output on
Is this a problem? Can some filesystems always have zero inodes?
Below is the output of
fdisk -l on formatted disk.
Disk /dev/sdb: 1000.2 GB, 1000204886016 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 121601 cylinders, total 1953525168 sectors Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0ff10b79 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 * 64 1953520063 976760000 c W95 FAT32 (LBA)
Formatting screenshot. I first unmount the HDD and then click the
Format Volume button shown. I have also clicked
Check filesystem but it didn't fix the problem.
