    Every entry uses an inode. Are you out of filehandles, or did you run out of space?

    I'm out of filehandles not space.

  • Since you haven't said what your filesystem is, I'll just assume it's ext4.

    Archive elsewhere and reformat.

  • Advice is still the same. You can't magically change inode block size from the command line.

    You can use tune2fs on it to see what it currently is, but you cannot change it.
