	Yes and no. Inodes are allocated when a filesystem is created
	based on a user supplied ratio. On most Linux installs, the
	default is 1 inode for each 4kb of disk space. So removing lots of
	small files will get you lots farther than deleting a few large
	ones. Unfortunately, there's no way to go back and allocate more
	inodes. If you intend on filling this partition up with more small
	files, you're going to need to reformat it.
