FSCK multiply-claimed blocks

Fsck has been running
for days. The problem seems to be multiply-claimed blocks. Example:

<filesystem metadata>
... (inode #365429022, mod time Wed Mar 24 08:48:23 2010)
Clone multiply-claimed blocks? yes

File /dl00use/public_html/files/6/1f2937jn0jtbly (inode #330334271, mod time Wed Mar 24 08:48:23 2010)
has 1 multiply-claimed block(s), shared with 2 file(s):
<filesystem metadata>
... (inode #365429023, mod time Wed Mar 24 08:48:23 2010)
Clone multiply-claimed blocks? yes

This takes like forever, probably due to the large number of
multiply-claimed blocks. This number can be from 6-2000000, where the
slow ones are fixed quicky and the large ones takes hours/days.

I have never seen this before, what is this and how can I prevent it from happening again,is there a faster way? my site has been down for daysss

this generally occurs when you have a large amount of data on your drive (which sounds like the case), your e2fs based filesystem starts trying to assign new sectors which just arent available, the way to fix this is to generally get a bigger disk or get rid of some unnecessary data
