Re: hosed disk usage stats


Try running fsck on the drive.  It usually goes something like this:

 # init 1
lots of crap while apps shut down
 # mount / -o remount,ro
if this fails at all, kill any processes that have files open for write on / then try again. DO NOT run fsck if / is mounted read-write!
 # fsck /dev/hda1
it will scan for errors
 # df
make sure the output is what you expect
 # mount / -o remount,rw
 # init 2
stuff should start back up

Hope that works
