CLRI(8)                 FreeBSD System Manager's Manual                CLRI(8)

NAME
     clri -- clear an inode

SYNOPSIS
     clri special_device inode_number ...

DESCRIPTION
     The clri utility is obsoleted for normal file system repair work by
     fsck(8).

     The clri utility zeroes out the inodes with the specified inode number(s)
     on the file system residing on the given special_device.  The fsck(8)
     utility is usually run after clri to reclaim the zeroed inode(s) and the
     blocks previously claimed by those inode(s).  Both read and write permis-
     sion are required on the specified special_device.

     The primary purpose of this routine is to remove a file which for some
     reason is not being properly handled by fsck(8).  Once removed, it is
     anticipated that fsck(8) will be able to clean up the resulting mess.

SEE ALSO
     fsck(8), fsdb(8)

BUGS
     If the file is open, the work of clri will be lost when the inode is
     written back to disk from the inode cache.
