clri(8) System Manager's Manual clri(8)Name
clri - clear inodes
/etc/clri filesystem i-number ...
The command has been superseded by for normal file system repair work.
The command writes zeros on the i-nodes with the decimal i-numbers on the filesystem. After any blocks in the affected file will show up
as `missing' in an of the filesystem.
Read and write permission is required on the specified file system device. The i-node becomes allocatable.
The primary purpose of this command is to remove a file which for some reason appears in no directory. If it is used to zap an i-node
which does appear in a directory, care should be taken to track down the entry and remove it. Otherwise, when the i-node is reallocated to
some new file, the old entry will still point to that file. At that point removing the old entry will destroy the new file. The new entry
will again point to an unallocated i-node, so the whole cycle is likely to be repeated again and again.
If the file is open, is likely to be ineffective.

clri, dcopy - clear inode
clri [-F FSType] [-V] special i-number
dcopy [-F FSType] [-V] special i-number
clri writes zeros on the inodes with the decimal i-number on the file system stored on special. After clri, any blocks in the affected
file show up as missing in an fsck(1M) of special.
Read and write permission is required on the specified file system device. The inode becomes allocatable.
The primary purpose of this routine is to remove a file that for some reason appears in no directory. If it is used to zap an inode that
does appear in a directory, care should be taken to track down the entry and remove it. Otherwise, when the inode is reallocated to some
new file, the old entry will still point to that file. At that point, removing the old entry will destroy the new file. The new entry will
again point to an unallocated inode, so the whole cycle is likely to be repeated again and again.
dcopy is a symbolic link to clri.
OPTIONS -F FSType Specify the FSType on which to operate.
The FSType should either be specified here or be determinable from /etc/vfstab by matching special with an entry in the
table, or by consulting /etc/default/fs.
-V Echo the complete command line, but do not execute the command. The command line is generated by using the options and
arguments provided by the user and adding to them information derived from /etc/vfstab. This option should be used to ver-
ify and validate the command line.
See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of clri and dcopy when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2 **31
/etc/default/fs Default local file system type

One of the common questions asked are: how do i remove/move/rename files with special (non-printable) characters in their name?
