Hi, Welcome to LQ!

LQ has a fantastic search function that may save you time waiting for an answer to a popular question.

With over 4 million posts to search it's possible the answer has been given.

fsck (file system check) type man fsck

It will remove stale inodes, etc. you should be right after that.

FSCK(8)                                  MAINTENANCE COMMANDS                                  FSCK(8)

       fsck - check and repair a Linux file system

       fsck [-sAVRTMNP] [-C [fd]] [-t fstype] [filesys...]  [--] [fs-specific-options]

       fsck  is  used to check and optionally repair one or more Linux file systems.  filesys can be a
       device name (e.g.  /dev/hdc1, /dev/sdb2), a mount point (e.g.  /,  /usr,  /home),  or  an  ext2
       label  or UUID specifier (e.g.  UUID=8868abf6-88c5-4a83-98b8-bfc24057f7bd or LABEL=root).  Nor‐
       mally, the fsck program will try to handle filesystems on different  physical  disk  drives  in
       parallel to reduce the total amount of time needed to check all of the filesystems.

       If  no  filesystems are specified on the command line, and the -A option is not specified, fsck
       will default to checking filesystems in /etc/fstab serially.  This is  equivalent  to  the  -As
there's more......

cheers, glenn
