    Hello everyone,

    I've got a 750 GB RAID-1 array on my Snow Leopard Mac Pro that is running dangerously low on inodes. It only has 144,000 files on it but look what df -i claims:
    Filesystem 512-blocks Used Available Capacity iused ifree %iused Mounted on
    /dev/disk13 1464477312 1394933032 69544280 96% 174366627 8693035 95% /Volumes/RAID-1 750

    It claims 174 MILLION inodes are used with only 8.6 million to go.

    Will Snow Leopard automatically add more inodes?

    Thanks for the help!

    Inodes in the UFS sense don't exist on HFS+. The compatibility layer will always report slightly less %iused than %capacity for an HFS+ volume.
