I can't tell you what is clogging up your root directory, but I can tell

Also, I am not a BSD user, so cannot say if this is a standard tool with
bsd, but it is a gnu util from the fileutils group.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team. I reply to save those more
